About the service
We help a diverse range of clients navigate the planning process. Our inputs include supporting local authorities at ‘critical friend’ level, full development management, and tackling challenging sites for developers or third sector organisations.
Private sector clients seek LUC’s development planning services to oversee the planning application process. We work proactively with design teams and planning officers to support a successful application.
Discharge of conditions
There are often conditions attached to planning permissions that need further details to be submitted and approved by the council at certain stages of the development. LUC guides clients through this process.
LUC’s specialists regularly represent local authority and private sector clients as expert witnesses at planning hearings and inquiries. Our clearly presented evidence and robust testimony helps to achieve the right outcome in complex cases.
