ASP is a well-established town planning consultancy based in Crowborough who have extensive experience of promoting planning proposals in Wealden District and beyond.
We provide planning advice across a wide range of development types for a range of clients in the public and private sectors. This includes residential and commercial developers, retailers, private landowners, local authorities, charities and smaller private clients. We work with clients from the planning appraisal stage (including advice on permitted development rights) through to the submission of applications and discharge of conditions thereafter. We also submit planning appeals (including appeals against enforcement notices) and lawful development certificates on behalf of clients. As planning consultants we often take on the ‘project manager’ role overseeing the range of consultancy input required for applications to ensure the most appropriate scheme is put forward. We have a range of consultants/architects that we work with on a regular basis that we can approach to obtain quotes for a project on your behalf.
The aim of a planning consultancy should be to secure the best and most appropriate development for a site that meets the requirements of the client in a way that suitably respects the natural and technical constraints of a site and takes reasonable account of the views and opinions of others. The aim of ASP is to secure the best solution in every case and to provide the highest levels of service to achieve this aim.
Of note in recent weeks the Planning Inspectorate has reported on Wealden’s Local Plan and has found it to be unsound in two respects (failure in respect of Duty to Cooperate and an unjustified approach to the Habitats Regulations Assessment). This has opened up the opportunity for planning proposals to be supported in Wealden – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make the most of this opportunity.
