are you a homeowner?

Obtaining planning consent is not always a straightforward procedure and careful strategic planning should be considered before the first contact is made with a local planning authority.

Whether an application is for a modest property improvement or a more substantial development application, Optimis will create an innovative strategy to increase the prospects of obtaining planning consent by evaluating all the options available to a homeowner.

Once a strategy for submission is agreed we will act on behalf of a client to submit, manage and negotiate the optimum planning approval, with particular attention to avoiding any unnecessary conditions or planning obligations.

We will undertake detailed policy analysis, prepare a design and access statement that gives a cogent and robust argument for why the proposals should be granted planning consent.

We work with homeowners and architects to create a design for your home which is likely to achieve planning consent. We set a strategy to maximise your chances of success.

Our experience enables us to also consider the practicalities of design and lend a friendly critical eye.
