Consents often contain conditions which require discharging prior to the commencement of development. Hughes Craven can identify all potential options and advise on the most efficient solution to allow development to commence without undue expense or delay.
Changing working practices, evolving environmental issues or simply the identification of a better method of developing a site can all lead to the requirement to vary existing conditions. We can work with operators and Local Authorities to ensure that the relevant conditions are varied to the satisfaction of all parties.
Planning obligations are legal agreements intended to make acceptable development which might otherwise be unacceptable in planning terms. Many Planning Authorities accept that planning obligations previously agreed or strategies previously approved render development unviable and we can advise on the renegotiation of existing obligations to reduce or defer costs.
