With all of our developments, we aim to take a proactive role from the outset. We use our knowledge and contacts to help you find the right site, adding value at an early stage with feasibility information generated quickly, accurately and efficiently.


RA work with you to assess the risks and rewards of potential sites. Upfront appraisals are one of our key services that we offer to our clients .We look for ways to overcome planning difficulties, technical and environmental problems or listed building issues.

Having a planning consultant in our team insures the right information gets to you at the start of a project.

Planning Consent

You can be assured that our strong working relationship with local planning authorities, at all stages of the  process can be what it takes to get your scheme successfully through the system.

We have substantial experience in the public consultation process, successfully engaging with stakeholders and local communities to discuss and present design schemes.

Using our experience, we work to reconcile any differences between your commercial imperatives and planning constraints. Working closely with our own, or external, Planning Consultants as well as Engineers and Ecologists at an early stage of the process, helps us ensure that schemes are deliverable and sustainable, providing the best chance of securing planning consent.
