    Planning Statement information

    There are many different types of planning statement; this page will give a brief insight into the main types, but please contact us for specific assistance. The FAQ's page also provides some further answers to popular questions. The main planning statement types are:

    Full Planning Statement

     

    The most common form of planning statement is to support a full planning application, however the type and complexity of the scheme will dictate how detailed the statement needs to be. Typically a statement will comprise a justification of the technical aspects (including highways, trees, ecology, landscaping etc), planning policy, design, sustainability, community involvement among others At Hunter Planning we have a wide ranging experience in submitting planning statements across a wide range of sectors including domestic, residential, commercial, retail, leisure and mixed use. We have specific experience in Paragraph 55 homes, Green Belt, Conservation Areas, NPPF 5 Year Housing Land Supply, Sequential Test statements among others.

    Householder Statements

    The householder statement service is a specific planning statement for works to private homes. House extensions are often contentious and refused due to a lack of justification against the relevant local authority policies

     

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Householder statements.

    Statement against planning approval subject to conditions

    Ensuring that every planning approval has appropriate and reasonable planning conditions is essential. If your application has been approved with condition (s), you have the right to statement to the relevant Planning Inspectorate who will then review and amend accordingly. This is not necessarily the best way to amend or remove planning conditions.

    Statement against non determination

    If your planning application has not been determined within the statutory time periods (8/ 13 weeks), you have a right to appeal to the relevant Planning Inspectorate requesting that they decide the application.

    Enforcement statements (including planning enforcement notice, listed building enforcement and discontinuance notice)

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Enforcement statements.

    Listed Building/Conservation Area statements

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Listed Building statements.

    Advertisement statements

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Advertisement statements.

    Lawful Development Certificate statements

    We are able to undertake Certificate of Lawful Development Certificate statements to determine whether proposed works are Permitted Development or that existing works were lawfully carried out. Please contact us more information.
