Thank you to our generous Headline sponsor Savills for their continued support of the Awards for Planning Excellence.
Planning is an integral part of Savills Development Services, which provides bespoke and fully integrated services for landowners. Developers, occupiers and investors across the development life-cycle.
Our Development Services team across the UK offers an exceptional end-to-end service including:
- Identifying the right sites
- Gaining relevant planning permission
- Advising and managing the design and build process
- Selling or leasing developments
Planning is a key, and often complex, factor in all transactions involving land and buildings. Establishing the best permission that is achievable is crucial to maximising a site’s value. We therefore aim to deliver planning solutions that maximise the value of our clients’ property assets talking into account the context provided by planning policies, technical and environmental constraints, local community considerations and overall sustainability.
Our approach to achieving the best value outcome is founded on having a clear understanding of each client’s objectives, comprehension of local policy and its interpretation, early engagement with planning officers as well as the local community and relevant councillors, and detailed negotiation of conditions and legal agreements.
Our 290 strong UK planning team operates from offices across all the principal regional markets.
Our national team of planning consultants has experience across the planning spectrum.
The team provides a full range of sector specialist advice combined with detailed local knowledge of planning policy and its interpretation as well as expert witness capability at examinations / inquiries. We constantly monitor changes in policy at a national and local level to ensure our clients remain a step ahead in the planning process.
