Leading building consultancy Ingleton Wood is celebrating a successful 2013 with 100% of their planning applications receiving approval.
The planning team, who work on projects all around the UK, achieved a 94% success rate for applications receiving approval at the first stage. Those refused were then given the go ahead either at appeal or through the second ‘free go’ route. In total, over 30 housing schemes have been successfully taken through the process.
Schemes included the redevelopment of a former Community Centre in North London on behalf of the local NHS Trust, as well as a 250 unit high density residential scheme at Carrow Quay in Norwich.
Iain Hill, Head of Planning at Ingleton Wood said of the success:
“Getting a project through planning can be at times a particularly tricky process, but the planning team have developed strong working relationships with key parties involved in the process.”
“We also advocate a staged and ‘front loaded’ approach to planning which ensures that any contentious issues are, where possible, addressed prior to the submission of an application, thereby reducing risk for our clients.”
“2013 was a very successful year for the Ingleton Wood team in terms of achieving for our clients, and we’re already working hard to ensure that 2014 is as successful.”
Ingleton Wood is a multi-disciplinary building consultancy offering architecture, building surveying, planning, building services, environmental design and interior design. The company has offices in London, Billericay, Colchester and Norwich.
