Planning Advice - Where to Begin

One of most common services we regularly provide is face to face meetings either on site or at our offices to assist you in understanding what kind of planning application you need to apply for, plus the potential costs.  We also regularly work with landowners, property developers and investors to help them understand the planning potential of their land or property, how to go about making an application and how to promote land for development in future. 

Full Services Provided - including design and architectural drawings. We provide the complete set of services you will need for any new development, from design and full architectural drawings to submitting the planning application on your behalf and dealing with all of the local planning authority’s requirements. If additional surveys or reports are needed, we’ll handle all of that too and keep you fully updated every step of the way.  Get in touch to start your next project.

Our services are bespoke to each project; some clients will have already appointed an architect, and that’s fine too. We work in collaboration with a range of local architects and architectural designers and so where an architect is already on-board we’re very happy to work alongside them and provide support on the planning side only.  We also offer in-house support to ensure full building regulation compliance and assistance with building control applications.  

So whatever your needs, and however you would prefer to receive advice, our experienced team members will work with you to identify the best and most cost effective planning solution for you.  Click here to see some of our recent projects and customer reviews.

Fytche-Taylor Planning & Design - Planning Applications and Architectural Design Consultants


Do you need planning advice to help make a consultation response on a planning application? When a planning application is submitted near your home or business you may want to make a formal representation to the council – otherwise known as a 'consultation response' – to set out your thoughts.

This can include making an objection, providing a general observation, or lending your support to a proposed development. For planning objection letters, to ensure that your response carries as much weight as possible it needs to focus on core planning issues.  Your response will have much greater impact if you relate your comments to specific planning policies or local planning rules.  This is where our professional advice will help.

Unfortunately, there are also some issues that are not considered by the local planning authority when making their decisions, or that carry very little weight, so it can be difficult to know where to start and what to focus on.  With our expert advice and considerable experience Fytche-Taylor Planning are well positioned to give you the best professional advice to ensure your voice is heard. 

If you are unsure about how to make a response and would like our help, please get in touch and we’ll discuss the options available and likely fees for any consultancy advice you need.

We offer planning advice wherever you are in the UK.  In addition to providing written advice, we have recently seen a huge surge in interest for our one-to-one zoom sessions with new clients too. These sessions are popular and book up fast, so please contact us for our current availability. 

"I contacted Oliver Fytche-Taylor last year when I had a planning issue. The information and advice he gave me was invaluable in solving the issue. Not only was he professional and knowledgeable but he was friendly and approachable. I have no hesitation in highly recommending his firm."

Planning Applications and permissions in Lincoln Lincolnshire - Planning Consultants for all developments and building projects

Project Review: North Greetwell, Lincoln - Planning Permission for one house? How about two!

Our clients sought to maximise the value of a large plot occupied by a single chalet-style bungalow . Fytche-Taylor Planning surveyed the site, redesigned the layout, prepared full architectural plans and submitted a planning application seeking to remove the existing building and replace it with two bespoke detached 4-bed character homes. Full Planning Permission was granted it under 7 weeks - oh, and we also sold the site on our client's behalf within 24 hours too!
