About Patrick Durr Associates

Patrick Durr Associates is an independent planning consultancy specialising in both country and town planning advice for a range of individual and business clients. The company is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

We approach the planning system with a positive, can-do attitude and always begin by listening to a client’s development ambition and using this as our objective.

We understand the difficulties associated with planning and so we try to simplify the process to provide a straightforward, empathetic approach. Using our legal specialities, crucially, we understand the mechanics behind the planning system and we enjoy technical or challenging projects. In particular, the company specialises in Lawful Development Certificates and Permitted Development applications.

More recently, Patrick Durr Associates has had ongoing success with the Government’s new Permitted Development rights which aim to remove much of the planning system’s red-tape for small projects.

In a time of a national housing shortage, we pride ourselves on actively pursuing potential sites from initial investigations to co-ordinating full strategic planning applications of varying sizes.

We see our pioneering ethical approach to development as the future for planning, and we are ready to guide both developers and investors to achieve both financially viable but also local, need driven projects.

Our strategy is simple, we provide a clear and direct service which assesses the positives and constraints of a site before advising if planning permission is obtainable. This saves our clients time and money, however rest assured, if there is a chance of planning approval, Patrick Durr Associates will find a way.

We are proud to say that we are not the average planning consultancy, and we tailor a comprehensive, flexible and creative approach to each project.
