A summary of the planning services we provide:

Development appraisals

A site appraisal is a survey and evaluation to determine the key characteristics of a site. Doing this assessment will provide you with a better understanding of the property and its opportunities/ limitations when seeking planning permission.

We have experience of dealing with planning conditions, restrictive covenants, agricultural and equine occupancy conditions, wayleaves and easements.

Pre-application advice and negotiations

Property Formula can offer you the best advice on how to proceed based on the findings of the site appraisal.

Preparation, co-ordination and submission of planning applications

We can prepare and submit all planning applications on your behalf ensuring all criteria are met.

Building regulation applications

There are various types of building regulation applications, all which Property Formula can assist you with. From Full Plans Applications to Building Notice Applications, we can advise you on what kind of application you need to make and take care of the application for you.

Listed building consent

This type of planning permission pertains to old buildings or ones that are of particular architectural significance. Rules around listed buildings can be complex and planning authorities strongly advise seeking the help of a chartered surveyor with buildings of this nature due to the strict conservation regulations around them.


This is the process in which businesses are invited to bid for contracts in public and private sector businesses. The process can be complicated and time consuming. Property Formula can assist you in your applications to submit them quickly and efficiently.

Planning appeals

When planning permission is rejected it can often feel like the end of the road. Only about one in three appeals are successful so its vital to make a clear and well-argued case. Using a trusted RICS Chartered Surveyor, you can be sure your appeal has the best chance of success.

Rights of way

Our understanding of land regulations enable us to give you concise advice regarding issues with public rights of way.

Project Coordination
