Walsingham Planning is a long-established and highly successful specialist Town Planning Consultancy. Originally formed in 1984, the Practice is now made up of over 20 fee earning professional staff, based in our offices in Knutsford, Bristol and Bourne End, Buckinghamshire.
We have extensive experience of successfully delivering planning permissions throughout the UK and across all development sectors.
We hold an intricate knowledge of the planning issues relevant to delivering residential planning permissions, be this for a single unit or for schemes of 150 + new units.
Whatever the scale of residential project sought, we treat our clients’ property development ambitions as if they were our own, and offer a diligent expert scale of service and boast an excellent track record and success rate.
Whether you are looking at a site designated for self-build units via a Local Plan or existing planning permission, or are reviewing a site with no planning history or designation, we would be delighted to assist you in taking your proposals forward.
In terms of recent examples of our work in the residential/self-build sector, the three case studies give an example of the type of planning permissions we have recently delivered.
From the outset of our engagement, Walsingham Planning gave me clear and concise advice about planning prospects and risks. They engaged with me throughout the application process and kept me fully updated at every stage. I would have no hesitation in using them again on a future project.
Mr and Mrs Ferris
Walsingham Planning overcame various challenges to deliver my planning permission and realise my dream of building my own home. Throughout the process, they adopted a professional and pragmatic approach and met all of the deadlines I required.
Despite this site’s setting within the Green Belt and being covered by a site-wide Tree Preservation Order, we were able to overcome these challenges and deliver planning permission for 3 Executive Dwellings.
To secure permission at this site, we had to convince the Council in question that the barn proposed for conversion remained structurally sound to satisfy one of a variety of planning policy criteria. We also demonstrated the benefits of delivering housing in this rural location and the site’s overall sustainability.
Our client in this instance sought to knock down an existing dwelling and rebuild it in a much more modern and enlarged form. Despite the site sitting adjacent to a conservation area, we were able to secure a substantial new modern building, inclusive of a large outbuilding to function as the client’s office.
