Good communication lies at the heart of our approach. Our planning team engage with elected councillors and members of the public as appropriate, present cases to planning committee if necessary and negotiate with officers both prior to, and post, submission in order to achieve the highest success rate.

 

PLANNING APPEALS

We work closely with our clients to provide sound professional advice on the prospects of an appeal succeeding prior to progression. Our appeal services are co-ordinated by Bloomfields Chartered Town Planners, the planning arm of Lambert and Foster.

Our planning team are also able to consider the most suitable method of appeal and offer advice accordingly.  This can be based on various considerations including cost, complexity and, the nature of planning issues to be addressed.

Our team prepare and submit full Written Representations appeals and also act as the expert planning witness at Hearings and Public Inquiries as appropriate.

The planning team has a good relationship with Counsel and have experience of instructing suitable planning barristers.  Our Planning team is also happy to work with an existing team of consultants if one is already in place. We work with witnesses for a co-ordinated approach and to ensure they are familiar with appeal procedure.

Public Inquiry work also involves the preparation of a statement of case, proof of evidence and negotiating a statement of common ground. These are all matters our planning team at Bloomfields has experience in

"Bloomfields were instructed to provide expert witness evidence at a Public Inquiry relating to an enforcement appeal.  In reviewing the case Bloomfields saw another way forward.  Over many months, they negotiated with all parties to postpone the Inquiry, submit a revised planning application and achieve planning permission for the works that had been enforced against. The appeal has now been withdrawn and my business can continue, which has been such a relief. They were professional and conscientious and never gave up, even when there were many obstacles placed in their way.  I would not hesitate to recommend Bloomfields for planning related work."
