Strategic Planning

Planning at a more strategic level seeks to secure formal allocation of land for development in either Local Plans or Neighbourhood Plans rather than applying for speculative applications. Strategic promotion of land offers a longer-term option for sites that may not offer any immediate development potential as a windfall (unplanned for) site but could be considered suitable in the future as part of a Local Planning Authority’s housing delivery strategy. Every Local Authority must demonstrate a rolling 5-year supply of housing to meet their identified needs and allocating sites through strategic planning is an integral part of this process. Our planning and development team are well versed in promoting land through the Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan process and can advise on whether your land has potential for allocation now or in the future and the best strategy for trying to secure that.
