Secure planning success

By law councils are required to have a five year housing supply. If this does not exist it opens up land outside of development boundaries for housing. At Marrons Planning we can help secure planning success by assessing suitable sites outside of the development boundaries and also assess whether councils do indeed have a five year supply to comply with the law.

Marrons can help you by assisting developers and councils stay abreast of the formulas used to assess housing need. Reports can be delivered assessing housing need at local and regional levels to support feasibility studies and development plans. We have experience of working with individual local authorities, planning teams and authority consortiums.
