The 1990 Town & Country Planning Act is at the legislative heart of all development in the UK. Almost no development or change of use of land can occur without first ensuring compliance with this legislation.
The implications of planning procedure can be highly controversial and incredibly complex - it is therefore important that proper advice is sought before engaging in any building or development work...
Bondstones' is an independent, unbiased and objective team; dedicated (almost entirely) to the 'Country' element of Town & Country Planning legislation.
Whether your requirements are for assistance with a new livestock production unit, a new farm workers' dwelling, a diversifying tourism enterprise or need urgent help with imminent enforcement action: If the site is surrounded by hedges or farmland we can almost certainly help!
Despite our rural planning specialist offer - our professional experience is wide and deep: We've worked with smallholders to camp-site operators and householders to multi-million pound property developers...

In addition to our expert planning function - we also provide a full range of in-house architectural and building design services for sites across the country.
The growing list of architectural services offered at Bondstones is rapidly gaining recognition throughout local planning authorities as providing 'excellent quality work' which enables planners and clients to clearly visualise design proposals in a useful and highly tangible context.
Aside from our dovetailed range of professional services, our architectural offer is also rather unique in its own right; Unlike many traditional 'architects' we now work almost exclusively with 3D design tools from the get go. This helps with the design process and enables clients and planners to easily and successfully realise our vision with plans that literally jump off the page.
For design advice, to commission our services or for general assistance please contact our head office:
Contrary to popular belief, not everyone involved in planning decision making can actually 'read' traditional 2D drawings...
...the days of drawing boards and basic line drawings are well behind us. Our 3D platforms now represent a supremely powerful aid for concept development and detailed design - also for assisting interpretation and appreciation at planning stages.
Stuck with a property problem and don't know where to turn? We have experience in a wide range of Estate Management and property issues.
Contrary to popular belief Chartered Surveyors are not just 'something to do with estate agency'!
If you are considering instructing a solicitor concerning any property matter it is often wise to approach an independent Chartered Surveyor first. Not only are our fees substantially lower (without any shadow of a doubt!), we can very often resolve matters before the lawyers need to get involved...
We also have the option for 'Direct Professional Access' - enabling us to instruct barristers to act directly on our clients behalf if necessary.
Don't get us wrong, solicitors are an important ally (we will always advise their involvement where appropriate) - it goes without saying that we are happy to recommend a handful of excellent specialists when necessary!
