This Practice offers reliable waterway planning services and are retained by the British Marine Federation as national planning consultants to provide advice on marine related planning issues. We have extensive experience of dealing with houseboats, moorings and marinas and development on canals.
The BMF is a leading trade Federation which represents the Recreational Boating Industry. Southern Planning Practice Ltd has been retained as planning consultants since 1994.
The Practice advised on the planning strategy and orchestrated a team of consultants to prepare the supporting planning submission.
The client was advised at the beginning of the process to engage with the locals to ensure as much support as possible. Pre-application meetings were recommended with the district council and British Waterways.
The Practice was able to successfully demonstrate that the proposal complied with policy despite its countryside location and that its effect on the landscape, ecology and conservation area would be a positive one. The application was considered by committee where it was unanimously endorsed by members.
