Community groups

If you find the planning process is a maze then I can help guide you through it.

I understand how important it is for local communities to engage effectively with the planning system, to make sure their voice is heard and their message is effective.

If you are concerned about how a proposed development may affect you and your community then I can provide information, advice and representation.

From planning applications to proposed allocations in local or neighbourhood plans, from major housing proposals to large industrial, commercial or infrastructure schemes, from pub closures to house extensions, and much, much more.

Your resources and your time will be limited and to make best use of them you will need to prioritise your efforts. I can identify the main issues where your efforts may have most impact, to show you how to present your case, or to present it on your behalf in dialogue with you. I can write comments on planning applications and on proposals in emerging, new local and neighbourhood plans. I can present for you at planning committees, help you to take part in appeals and represent you at examinations and inquiries.
