This is certainly true of much of what DRK Planning do.
Their multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together legal experience, planning sense and commercial pragmatism, often sees them applying the law to help their clients.
One of their clients had extended their home without permission and the Council threatened them with an enforcement notice.
DRK stepped in, worked with officers, helped the client to assemble sworn evidence, and obtained a lawful development certificate for the extensions; saving the customer a lot of
stress whilst substantially increasing the value of their house.
