Local Development Framework

Cheffins' Planning team recognise the importance of the local plan process and associated consultations for promoting and securing the development of land.

We have regular contact with the Councils and liaise with Local Plan teams to ensure we are aware of consultation events in advance of formal consultations dates, thereby allowing sufficient time for detailed representations to be prepared. We work with Councillors and Senior Officers to promote clients' interests. We attend Local Plan examinations to present evidence on behalf of our clients and determine the benefits and timescales for submitting applications as sites move forwards for allocation. We can also advise you on the opportunities of working with developers or site promoters to share the costs of site promotion.
