Our Services

Planning Applications

We provide expert advice on obtaining planning permission, helping you navigate the planning system and giving you the best chance of success. Our attention to detail and honest approach has enabled us to develop a track record of success for clients. We are able to assist on applications for all forms of development, and can submit and monitor applications on your behalf, or work with architects to provide professional and convincing planning documents, such as Planning Statements.

Planning Appeals

A planning refusal doesn't need to be the end of the road for your development project. We can review your case and support you with robust evidence. As part of this service, we will provide you with a no-obligation assessment of your scheme, which will identify if an appeal is the best route for you and your site. Our comprehensive Planning Appeal Service will give your site the best chance of success at appeal.

Strategic Land Promotion

If you are looking to unlock the potential of your land, Cedar Planning is well placed to help you. With our expert knowledge of the plan-making system, we can create effective and convincing land promotion strategies for your site. We are also able to source and identify sites for development.

Planning Objections

Development of the wrong type in the wrong place can have negative impacts on local residents and businesses. We are able to assist with well-researched and focused planning objections which will ensure that your voice is heard. We produce planning objections in an open and transparent way, ensuring that your local concerns can be incorporated.

Sequential Tests

If your site is at risk of flooding, you may be required to produce a Sequential Test. National Planning Policy requires development to be directed to areas at lowest risk of flooding. A Sequential Test is used to demonstrate that there are no other sites for your development which are at a lower risk of flooding. This includes a comprehensive assessment of all other potential development sites in a given search area, and Cedar Planning are well placed to help you.
