Feasibility Sketches and Design Appraisals

Feasibility Sketches and Design Appraisalsddp have been involved in a number of initial site appraisals to assess if the project is feasible. In some cases, sketch designs are undertaken and pre-application advice is sought from the Local Authority. If a project is seen to be feasible from the results of the study, the next logical step is to proceed with a planning application. The research and information uncovered in the feasibility work will support the detailed planning and hopefully increase chances of a consent being obtained.


Planning Applications

Planning AppealsNumerous planning applications have been prepared, submitted and progressed successfully by ddp over the years with a wide range of Local Authorities. Our planning application package includes full plans, Planning, Design and Access Statement, Energy Statement, and submission and negotiation of the application. We are also able to co-ordinate external consultants if required. We pride ourselves in developing good relationships with the case officers and keeping the client fully informed of the process as it progresses.

Planning Appeals

In some cases where a planning application is unsuccessful at local level it is necessary to proceed with the appeal process. ddp is able to advise the client of the best way to proceed and have knowledge and experience in preparing and submitting either written representation appeals or informal hearing appeals and following them through to a decision. Once again we pride ourselves in maintaining a full dialogue with the client, discussing the options in terms of chances, cost and timescale and involving the client with the process to what ever level they feel comfortable and appropriate.
