Our planning and development team can assist you with every stage of your planning application along with the appraisal, acquisition or sale of space for commercial development.
The planning regulations governing commercial properties are complex and, seemingly, ever changing. Henry Adams Commercial has a dedicated team to assist you with any planning enquiry, including change of use applications, outline and full planning applications and listed building and conservation area applications. Our team members have a thorough understanding of both national and local policy and enjoy good working relationships with the local council planning departments in Chichester, Havant, East Hampshire, Arun, Horsham, Winchester and Sussex. In fact, one of the team is a former Chief Planning Officer for Fareham Borough Council with a wealth of council-side experience that is highly valued by the group.
We have helped all kinds of clients with their planning applications, from private individuals and small businesses to mainstream property developers and local government organisations, with notable clients including The Diocese of Bath and Wells, The Church Commissioners and The Crown Estate. During the course of our work we have both represented clients at key strategic meetings and negotiated the terms of Section 106 agreements. As well as having plenty of past experience to draw on, our planning advisers are equally good at thinking ahead, anticipating issues and making speculative enquiries with the planning authorities with a view to finding an agreeable way forward.
We are also able to provide a detailed appraisal of the development potential of a piece of land and assist in the sale or acquisition of land for development.
