Architectural Planning & Development

The planning process enables value to be unlocked in sites and buildings, however it has become an increasingly regulated, complex and ever changing area of law. We have many years of experience in dealing with planning applications and the negotiation of proposals through the ‘planning maze’.

At UNDERWOOD Associates we are able to support this service through the preparation of outline and detailed schemes for potential development sites and advice on feasibility and development costs. Experience tells us that the key to the successful negotiation of planning consents on difficult or sensitive sites is via a thorough understanding of the regulatory and legal framework allied to sensitive and realistic design proposals and a non adversarial approach in our dealings with the Planning Authority.


We are based in Carlisle and offer “Architectural Planning & Development” across Cumbria and the UK. With over 30 years of experience we can deliver a level of professional service to meet your needs.
