Home What We Do Planning Consultants

Planning Consultants

At Hughes Architects, we recognise that achieving planning permission is more than just being policy compliant. It is about understanding a wider range of factors and applying them to reach a favourable outcome.

We are different from others. As architects and planning consultants, we are experienced in all aspects of planning regulations and guidelines in Wales and England, from small to large scale developments, including vast experience of the Welsh Government’s Pre-Application Consultation requirements on larger scale housing and commercial developments.

Our aim is to provide consistently expert and meaningful advice to tackle challenging planning issues and deliver enhanced value. We can help optimise the development potential of your site, and ensure the best outcome possible.

Based on years of experience of working with the Local Planning Authorities, we can offer planning support for:

  • Site/property appraisals
  • Local Development Plan promotion/monitoring
  • Planning applications
  • Planning appeals
  • Feasibility advice
  • Pre-application advice
  • Consultant coordination
  • Building Regulations applications
  • Support statements
