Smart Planning is alert to the many remedies available in the absence of a relevant planning permission. We can provide an honest assessment of the likely outcome and recommend steps to best resolve the situation at hand. This may involve providing factual information (or other submissions to the Local Planning Authority), proving that development is lawful, engaging in effective negotiation, making a relevant planning application or appealing against an enforcement notice.

Enforcement enquiries, have an immediacy which Smart Planning are familiar with. We will prioritise any initial enforcement enquiries through our free client surgeries and we have the resources to respond quickly and efficiently.
