Traditional Residential – Planning Applications/Permissions 

With a well-recognised housing crisis, the house building industry and local authorities are coming under increased pressure to deliver more homes. Managing the planning process efficiently and effectively is a key element in unlocking this, ensuring that land is allocated and brought forward as soon as possible, and deliverable planning permissions are granted promptly.
We are client focused and understand what the house building industry wants and how to achieve it. At a time of increased legislative changes and new policy initiatives, we understand the system and the needs of our clients. This means that we have delivered consents and allocations in the face of considerable objections and to programmes that appeared impossible to achieve.
In addition, the affordable housing crisis is generating more media attention and given how this sub-sector is funded, direct and indirect work within the sub-sector is increasing. Moreover, the growing ageing population forecasts (a 22% projected increase from 11.7 to 14.3 million people over 65 from 2015 to 2025) have resulted in an additional need for a range of elderly accommodation across the UK. DPP have experience access both of these sub-sectors and we are expanding further into these sectors.
