DPP has a breadth of experience across the residential sector, including PRS and student accommodation. Our projects can vary from single dwellings to large urban extensions.

We advise at all stages of housing development from site identification and promotion through the SHLAA and Local Plan process, providing evidence on five year housing land supply, to resolving complex planning issues and providing comprehensive documentation to support planning applications and appeals.

We have successfully gained planning permission within city centres and city centre conservation area for large student accommodation schemes and also for the conversion of existing buildings via change of use applications to provide student accommodation.

Our work in the PRS sector has facilitated the development of large residential apartment blocks on existing brownfield sites.

Our experience of working with individual as well as the UK’s regional and national housebuilders means we can manage the whole process of planning a residential development, including environmental impact, sustainability and heritage issues
