Planning Objections Services

Making Planning Objections Simple

To ensure you are happy we can provide the service you expect, your first consultation is free, with no obligation.  You will receive all advice in writing.

Once you have provided details of the application and your concerns, we will undertake an initial review.  After which, we will let you know if your concerns would carry weight as part of the planning application process. 

We know that the timescales for commenting on planning applications are short, so we aim to get back to you with our initial advice and details of our costs to assist you within two working days.  That way, you should be able to decide the most effective way to express your concerns on the application.  If you want to appoint us to help you, we require payment of 50% of the agreed fee on appointment and the remaining balance when we have completed the work.

Depending on your understanding of planning issues and the role you want to take, we can tailor our service to meet your specific needs.  For example, this could include:

  • Providing you with advice and guidance which would allow you to prepare and submit your own letter;
  • Writing a draft letter for you to refine, such as adding any personal details and submit to the local planning authority;
  • Preparation and submission of an objection letter to the local planning authority on your behalf;
  • A review of the planning officers report to planning committee and provision of comments and guidance, you could use this to submit further comments on the application;
  • Advice on public speaking at the planning committee, if you feel it is important to set out your concerns to the planning committee members. This could include drafting a public speaking statement; or
  • Helping you to input to a planning appeal.

How the planning objection process works

To ensure you are provided with a high-quality service, for all instructions we undertake a full review of the planning application documents and the relevant planning policy framework. 

You will normally receive a draft objection letter from us within five working days of instruction.  However, depending on the complexity of the proposal and number of documents to review, this may take longer, but we will set out the timescales involved as part of the feedback from our no obligation consultation.

Before deciding if you need our help, you might want to take a look at our FAQs page, which explains a bit more about the planning process.  This could help you to prepare your own objection letter.
