Infra-Link Planning

Planning is a complex and complicated journey...

…Our mission is to lead the way and support you on this journey to help you achieve your planning goals.

Can I get planning permission?  Find out quickly by using our site appraisal service – a site appraisal is a good first step to quickly find out the potential of your site.

We offer a thorough and timely desktop assessment of your site’s development potential, to provide you with a clear indication of the likelihood of obtaining planning permission and offer alternative strategies if your initial proposal is unlikely to be supported wherever we can. 

Our site appraisals are clear, robust and detailed, outlining key issues, constraints and opportunities, material considerations unique to your proposal, a thorough policy review and site history check, assessment of any local precedence considerations, providing an informed view as to whether your proposal is acceptable in principle, whether it is possible to overcome any key challenges, recommendations based on our findings and finally advice on the next steps available to you to achieve your planning goals. 

This is a really useful way to channel your initial ideas into reality and forms a solid foundation for your future planning application.

What We Do

A bespoke consultancy practice to link different ideas, identify opportunities and risks and achieve tailor-made solutions.

“All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination”
