As well as the full range of specialist Town Plannning advice and services provided by C60 Planning Belfast, we use our expertise to ensure that all of our projects pass through the planning system as rapidly as possible. Where others have a passive approach to planning, simply submitting the plans and waiting for a response, C60’s chartered Planning Consultants monitor and track all our projects . By doing this we identify any potential issue raised by consultees that could delay planning approval and deal with it as rapidly as possible.
