Achieving planning approval is a significant part of any development stage for a project and we are highly experienced in submitting both Outline and Detailed Planning Applications for Independent Schools, Academies and MATS. We are experienced in dealing with Local Authorities and have a thorough understanding of the planning legislation surrounding schools and we can advise at very early stages of a project the most likely outcome for a planning application.
Grayling Thomas Architects are also experienced in submitting Planning Pre-Application Submissions in order to obtain written confirmation in principle of a proposed development.
Grayling Education Surveys provide support for Planning Applications and these can include Measured Surveys, Premises Assessments etc.
We have dealt with many complex site issues in regard to Planning Applications such as those involving Archaeology, Highways, Trees, Ecology, Flooding etc. We can advise and bring in the necessary specialists to assist with any of these to give schools reassurance that these matters are being dealt with in accordance with planning legislation.
Grayling Thomas Architects are also highly experienced in discharging planning conditions on behalf of Schools and we are able to manage the whole Planning process on behalf of Business Managers, Bursars and Headteachers.
