Below are some of our services in more detail.
At Prism Planning we pride ourselves on our accurate advice and fair pricing.
From full applications to householder Prism submits a range suiting all types of development. Applications have been made for changes of use from retail to residential as well as larger housing projects of up to 1200 homes. We have also undertaken a series of EIA related projects.
Setting aside Prism’s no-nonsense and down to earth approach to discussing issues with Clients; Prism are more than capable of negotiation with Planning Barristers, Appeal Judges and Advocates of the highest order.
We have taken part in formal Public Inquiries as both Planning Agents and Expert Witnesses, and have progressed developments through to judgement at the Court of Appeal.
If we believe you have a really solid case to be made going to the highest level of appeal we will let you know, and back you all the way.
Our team’s favourite projects are usually those which involve a building with some historical character. If you want to make changes or repairs to a listed building, or if you are looking to develop within a conservation area.
If you live in an area where development is restricted such as a Conservation Area or National Park we can help you make the changes to your home whilst recognising the quality of the landscape and heritage behind the designation.
Agricultural development has specific and specialised planning procedures to support the business development and growth of farming. Whether you are an arable farm or a livestock farm, we can help you get over your planning hurdles so that you can concentrate on operating your buisness.
We have recently undertaken several projects on behalf of clients who are in the equine industry. We have a 100% track record in this industry and are proud to work alongside the British Horse Society, specialised vets and horse owners in achieving permissions in this niche.
We recognise that occasionally the complex rules can leave you backed in to a corner when things go wrong, or you inadvertently undertake development which is unauthorised.
When this happens there is no need to panic. Prism can work on your behalf to resolve the issue with the Council and to mediate to a resolution.
Let us take the stress out of that enforcement notice.
