Many householders can undertake extensions and alterations without the need for planning permission, saving time, worry and expense. We can advise you on the best way forward and give you all of your options. If your proposals do require planning permission, we can prepare the entire planning application for you (including all drawings) and will monitor it throughout the planning application process.
The nature of planning applications can vary greatly, from a small householder application to a mixed use scheme for commercial and residential units. SJC Planning has experience in dealing with the preparation and submission of a huge range of applications, from a small porch right up to large industrial units, including applications in Conservation Areas, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Listed Buildings, not forgetting Lawful Development Certificates and Agricultural Prior Notifications!
SJC Planning also has experience in dealing with a number of the more contentious planning issues on the Island, such as hotel to private residential applications, stables and change of use applications. Using the local knowledge, coupled with the previous experience and academic knowledge, Simon is able to produce a complete package to suit whatever scale project is required.
We prefer to make all applications online, wherever possible. This reduces the need for duplicates of plans and so reduces the cost to you. It also means that information can be quickly transferred and sent to the Local Planning Authority, so if you are under a time constraint, this can be really beneficial.
Planning applications generally take 8 weeks for the Local Planning Authority to determine, this can seem like much longer! As Agent, it is the role of SJC Planning to keep you updated regarding any feedback from the planning officer, good or bad, and to respond to requests for additional information, revisions to plans and so on as may be needed.
Why choose SJC Planning? We work with experienced architects, designers, landscape architects, surveyors and related specialists to ensure that your application is placed within a planning policy framework, giving it the greatest chance of success.
