Are you looking for reports to help with planning applications?

OMC Associates can produce a variety of reports to address specific planning requirements. This can either be a request for more information to accompany a planning application or discharge of a condition attached to a planning consent.
Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) have a duty to protect good and third party trees and proposed developments must demonstrate that the scheme will not adversely impact on these trees. It should be noted that all householder planning applications must state if there are trees 'within falling distance', and failure to do so will delay or invalidate an application.
Because of many years of experience working within LPAs and the establishment of a good reputation with many LPAs, OMC reports are well regarded and consequently facilitate planning applications.

OMC Associates offers these planning reports:
