Planning Policy has moved relatively quickly over the last few years. More than ever, there is a presumption towards development, rather than against it. For decades Government Policy has promoted the redevelopment of redundant farm buildings but emerging legislation is taking this one step further, allowing certain development under permissive rights, without the need for full planning permission, although Building Regulations and Listed Building Consent may still apply.
At Fenn Wright we can guide you through the planning process and ensure that the correct procedure is followed, and the right permissions obtained. We can also undertake a feasibility study, assessing the cost of a proposed development against returns, to ensure your development is financially feasible before costs are incurred.
