E & S Bristol's goal is to ensure you have a successful planning application. We will help and ensure you target and satisfy the right polices to ensure your developments get approved.

Planning Support
Get it right the first time around

E & S Bristol have seen numerous cases where building work has been rejected or developments have been signed up to unnecessary energy targets and requirements, all because the planning policies have not been investigated properly. Involving us early in the design process will ensure you get it right first time around.

New Build, Conversions and Extensions


Going through a planning application process for your development is something you only want to tackle once.

It's common for local planning authorities across the country to require you to set out and report on how you will achieve the specific built environment policies in their Core Strategy or Local Development Framework Documents. Whether these be energy and carbon targets, daylight, ecology or water consumption E & S Bristol can help.


Before permission is granted you are required to demonstrate you have considered sustainable fabric design, appropriate heating and renewable technologies in line with local policy. We know that at early stages in the design process, with out a contractor or builder these things have not been fully considered.

Having been involved in multiple projects from concept to completion, our approach is to ensure you meet the targets of regulation and policy, practically and sensibly irrespective of who will carry out the build.

We know things can change, especially from planning stages that's why we will always give numerous options to achieve the end goal, allowing you to optimise your costs and reduce your risk.

We have a number of different skill sets that enable us to provide support across many different energy and sustainability aspects of your planning application.

We can offer you the following in relation to your planning application:

  • Sample modelling to provide guidance on Part L compliance strategies 

  • Feasibility assessment of renewable solutions and their impact on the energy efficiency targets

  • Energy and Sustainability Statements

  • BREEAM Support

  • Daylight and Sunlight assessments

  • Rights of Light Calculations
