Local Authority Dealings:
Alderley Property Group Ltd cannot guarantee that, Planning, Listed Building, Conservation Area Consent/ approval will be achieved on any project.
There are occasions where a client’s specific requirements are at variance with planning or design policy in a particular area, and subsequent amendments have been necessary following the submission of the scheme to the Local Authority, or indeed another application may need to be submitted.
We would use our best endeavours to avoid this at design stage, and would try to advise when difficulties could be anticipated. We do, however, reserve the right to charge for our time amending or redrawing the proposal should it ultimately prove a necessity these are charged at our standard hourly rates.
Administration £60 per hour
Architectural Technologist £95 per hour
Director £250 per hour.
We would draw your attention to the fact that Local Authorities now request an increasing amount of supporting documents to be submitted with Planning Applications, the exact extent of this information is subject to both National and Local requirements; but is also subject to the demands of Planning Authorities and officers. What one Local Authority may demand is not necessarily what an adjacent authority would equally demand. Alderley Property Group Ltd cannot therefore guarantee that all supporting documents or information requirements will be known at the time an application is submitted.
Alderley Property Group Ltd will liaise with other consultants to assist in obtaining supporting documentation, but cannot be held responsible for the time and extent that gathering such information may entail. The Client should note that the Planning Authority will not register a planning application until all supporting documentation is received.
Where it becomes necessary to Appeal a Planning or Listed Building Consent Decision we will advise you of the implications and would need to charge for the time to prepare any appeal and the supporting documents and statements necessary to submit the Appeal. This may include recommending the appointment of a Planning Consultant to deal with specific Planning Policy issues, there are projects where policy issues would warrant this additional service.
