About us - 1980 to present
CHP is an independent planning and Building Design consultancy specialising in Development
Control and Planning Enforcement. CHP provide a range of services to help our clients navigate the Planning and
Building Control process to realise their development aspirations.
CHP can advise you if a development proposal requires planning permission. CHP can also suggest changes

See our reviews & testimonials on
Applying for planning permission can be a complex process and it is often easier appointing an agent to submit
the application on your behalf. CHP will produce the necessary drawings, specifications and supporting information
for a planning application, including a design statement justifying your proposal where applicable. CHP will
progress the application, negotiate with the Local Planning Authority if required and deal swiftly with any
problems that may arise.
If a planning application is refused or you are not happy with any conditions imposed, an
appeal can be made to the Secretary of State. However, this rarely happens with CHP controlled designs. Around 1 in
3 of appeals succeed and CHP will ensure that your case is effectively made to the Planning Inspectorate if you
would like to pursue an approval beyond the local council.
CHP is run by an experienced Architectural Technologist who is a Chartered
Architectural Technologist and has extensive and wide ranging experience gained in Local Authority
Planning and Building Control Departments. Prior to our professional bodies name change we used to be
referred to as 'Architectural Technicians'.
At CHP mostly everything is done by personal attention (site visits and meetings), by post,
e-mail, fax and phone. We work fast, meet deadlines and guarantee that our advice is independent and given in good
faith. We believe in long-term relationships with our clients and offer a very professional service with real help
