planning & development
Townsend Chartered Surveyors advise on the development potential of sites throughout the South West and handle planning applications from start to finish as well as advise on option agreements, appeals and disputes.
We can provide planning advice to help maximise the value of property assets, which might include the use of permitted development rights, obtaining planning consents for development land, barn conversions, agricultural dwellings, change of use applications, listed building consent, and design and drawings. We can also advise on the lifting of agricultural ties.
Our thorough understanding of agriculture helps us to prepare Agricultural Need Assessments to support planning applications for both agricultural dwellings and farm buildings.
If you have had a planning application refused or rejected we can handle your appeal all the way up to the Secretary of State, defend you in respect to any Enforcement Notices and also act for you submitting objections to other planning applications
We can assist with the design and preparation of drawings for new dwellings, agricultural buildings, barn conversions, access tracks, visibility splays and landscaping, as well as a variety of other projects.
We can advise on the development potential of sites and how best to achieve planning permission.
We can advise farmers on diversification options and provide the planning support to bring them to reality.
