Planning Community Engagement Development Advice

Our blend of extensive planning knowledge, market awareness and skills in community engagement set us apart from other consultancies

In an ever more complicated planning system we play a central role in steering projects through the planning process. Our goal is to deliver the best quality innovative planning solutions, always on time, and at a competitive price.

We are planning professionals

ShrimplinBrown are skilled at navigating complex projects through the planning process. We have a full and detailed understanding of the planning system, how it has evolved and how it continues to change. We are experts at getting to the heart of the matter to deliver our clients effective results, on time and at a competitive price.

We don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to planning applications. Each client, and each site, has specific demands that require a tailored planning solution. We look at projects in a commercial manner and, wherever possible, seek to challenge convention and identify innovative solutions which can maximise the chances of success whilst adding value and saving development costs.

We are experienced in instructing and managing the full range of consultants necessary to support planning applications, and driving a team forward to ensure that they deliver success. We work with each member of the team to ensure that they are maximising the potential of the development and producing as robust a submission as possible.

We can help you talk to communities

As local communities become ever more influential it is as important to know your local community as much as the Local Plan.

Delivering planning permissions is not just a technical process, but also a political one. Understanding this and engaging effectively with politicians and local groups can be as important as addressing technical issues. It is vital to understand people’s motivation and objectives, as well as appreciating the individual personalities involved in the process.

Careful and structured engagement with communities is central to success. Proving a strong technical case is key, but ensuring that this is communicated in a clear and coherent way helps to bridge the gap between local communities and the professional team. Community Engagement is therefore, at the heart of what we do.

We can help you add value

We do not think of ourselves as just planners: we think as the client thinks. We understand the pressures they face, we know what they demand of us and others, and we realise how important the right result is for them.

Often our clients look to us to guide them through the wider development process, including; site assembly discussions, due diligence and negotiating leases with occupiers. Moreover, through our extensive contacts we are well placed to bring together developers,landowners and investors.
