Site Assessments

At The Rural Planning Practice, we understand that a site assessment is a crucial initial step for any project. That's why we offer a fixed-price site visit to kickstart this process.

A Thorough Site Assessment Process

Initial Research

Before our visit, we meticulously research the planning or enforcement history and identify any constraints, such as landscape designations or proximity to features like ancient woodland or flood zones.

During The Visit

During the site visit, we engage in detailed discussions about your project goals. We may propose alternative approaches and provide practical, positive, and cost-effective advice. If necessary, we'll offer gentle guidance if certain ideas seem unlikely to succeed.

A Team of Experts

For most applications, additional specialist input is essential. We collaborate with a team of experts in various disciplines, including ecology, contamination, flood risk, highways, trees, archaeology, building archaeology, structural engineering, noise, and environmental health.

Site Assessment Fees

Our service fee is determined by factors such as the site's size, location, and the complexity of the project. Reach out to us to discuss your project needs, and let us guide you through the planning process with expertise and efficiency.
