What are Planning Statements?

Planning Statements provide a balanced yet convincing argument setting out why planning permission should be granted for your proposal. They identify, assess and justify the proposal against the relevant local and national planning policies and other material considerations for your proposal.

If your proposal requires careful consideration of different planning matters, a Planning Statement can be vital in bringing all of this evidence together.

Where relevant our expert Planning Statements cover the following matters:

  • Identify and assess the relevant local plan, neighbourhood plan and national policies.

  • Assess the proposal against the policies.

  • Material considerations such as the benefits of the proposal.

  • Any relevant planning decisions, appeal decisions or case law.
