Pre-application Planning Advice

To assist you with your planning application, the professionals at Neil Dowlman Architecture act as your planning agent by carrying out pre-planning consultations and negotiations with the local planning department to help steer your project in the right direction. This process helps tease out issues at the early stages prior to formal planning applications being submitted and therefore ensures a smooth running planning application.
