The majority of local planning authorities up and down the country are currently embarking on a review of their Local Plan.  Local Plans are the policy documents that determine the types of developments that are acceptable (or not) on sites within a local authority area. 

Some local authorities are at a more advanced stage in the preparation of their Local Development Frameworks than others, although the majority are still at the early stages of the review process. This is therefore the optimum time to make representations to your Local Planning Authority to seek to achieve development on your land that would not be permitted under current Local Plan policies.  Hughes Planning is able to make professional representations on your behalf in order to significantly enhance the opportunity of your site being earmarked for future development.
