We aim to provide a realistic and detailed assessment of whether a site can achieve planning permission. We will consider:
the type and quantity of development that we believe can be secured;
the most appropriate approach to achieve this; and
the likely timescale.
Our appraisal will focus on the existing designation of the site and the relevant national, regional and local planning policy context. It will also take account of the planning history of the site and its physical characteristics and topography and that of the surrounding area.
