Commercial Planning Applications

Commercial & Developer Planning Applications

Just Planning provides specialist planning services for developers and commercial clients. We can provide expert advice, prepare commercial planning applications and submit and manage planning appeals.

We work with a many large and small developers across England and Wales, and especially in London and the home counties.

Just Planning can provide assistance with a full range of planning issues, including preparing pre-application submissions and detailed planning applications for the following:
• New dwellings
• Conversion of properties into flats
• Commercial changes of use
• Shopfronts and advertisement consent
• Factory/industrial development
• Public sector development
• Section 106 negotiations
• Discharge of conditions

We also have special expertise in the prior approval (permitted development) rights that have been introduced progressively since May 2013. We have had made successful applications (and planning appeals) for office to residential conversions, storage to residential conversions and agricultural buildings to residential conversions. These types of commercial planning applications are an excellent way to release value from underused or redundant buildings.

We are also planning enforcement experts. We can assist with Planning Contravention Notices, Stop Notices and Enforcement Notices. It is important that early action is taken when planning enforcement problems arise. Find more details on our dedicated planning enforcement page:

Our consultants take a keen interest in new developments in the commercial planning sector, especially anything affecting our developer clients. The government continues to tinker with the planning system, with a number of important proposals currently out to consultation. Some of the government’s proposals will provide developers and commercial land owners with significant new opportunities.
