Planning and Building Control Applications

Our highly personalised and expert service means we deal with all types of planning applications including; Industrial, residential developments, single dwellings, extensions, retail, agricultural, renewable energy, tourism, recreational, community and waste management projects.
We can guide you and your proposals through the application process including post submission monitoring and management.
If you have had a planning application refused by the local authority, we can help you submit a planning appeal to the Planning Appeals Commission. We act for clients on all types of appeals including written appeals, hearings and public inquiries.
Initially we will assess your options and the likelihood of success prior to advising to take the decision to appeal. Should the decision be taken to appeal, we will work to present a case that has been researched thoroughly and draws upon all our knowledge of the planning system.
We can help you choose the appropriate route and take you through the appeal process. We have significant experience and ability to give your appeal every chance of success.
NI Planning Consultants can provide assistance and advice for clients subject to enforcement action by their local planning authority. Enforcement action is taken in the event of a breach of planning control, either because planning permission has not been obtained or there is a failure to comply with any condition or limitation subject to which planning permission has been granted.
In the event that enforcement action is taken against your development, our consultants can advise the best course of action to remedy the alleged breach of planning control.
Failure to act upon either an Enforcement Notice or Stop Notice could result in court action by the local planning authority leading to substantial fines.
Our vast experience in this area enables us to advise and provide the most effective planning enforcement solutions.
