Licensing & Commercial Properties

We provide a large range of services to the legal and licensing industries and commercial venues such as clubs and restaurants. These include the following:

APPLICATIONS FOR CHANGE OF USE
Any new business will require a change of use application if that building does not already have that type of license. We will prepare all plans and forms and even include specifications (e.g. for extraction systems in restaurants).

APPLICATIONS FOR LIQUOR LICENSES
Liquor licenses require building plans for both personal licenses and business licenses. These are then submitted to the relevant departments.

NEW SIGN SHOPFRONT APPLICATIONS
Any new signs for a business requires an application. We will prepare all plans and designs for signage and lighting and submit all application forms.

LAND REGISTRY APPLICATIONS
Any Land Registry issues (for example, buying and selling of land) will require measuring and plotting out the relevant land in question in several different scales for Land Registry Approval. We have successfully carried out this service for many solicitors, estate agents and private individuals for many years.

ENFORCEMENT NOTICES
If the council contacts you and says that you have not got permission for an extension, change of use or any other planning issue, you will be issued with an enforcement notice. Typically, you will be required to complete a retrospective application, which means applying for planning permission after you have built your extension. We have had many years of experience in completing these applications, and our pass rate is very high.

DESIGN & ACCESS STATEMENTS
We are able to provide 'design and access statements', which are short reports accompanying and supporting a planning application. A design and access statement illustrates the process that has led to the development proposal, and it explains and justifies the proposal in a structured way.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENTS
We are able to provide assessments of the risk of flooding, particularly in relation to residential, commercial and industrial land use.

LISTED BUILDING APPLICATIONS
These are required in order to carry out any works to a Listed Building that will affect its special value for listing purposes. This will almost certainly be necessary for any kind of major work, but it may also be necessary for minor alterations and possibly even repairs and maintenance. Listed Building Consent may also be necessary for a change of use of the property.
