What is a Landscaping Scheme?
Landscaping Schemes are an important part of any planning application or development project. Often required by the local authority in order for planning permission to be considered, landscaping schemes highlight any changes to the surrounding landscape as a result of development on a property and any intended landscaping works.
The Landscaping Scheme provides an overview of the project, from start to finish, by breaking the entire project down into sections including a Planting Plan, Materials and Construction Plan and Tree Survey, if required. We understand that every project is different, so each plan is bespoke and takes in to consideration any features of the existing landscape, whether they need to be removed or are intended to remain.
So, how does it work?
Upon your initial contact with ProHort, our experts will be able to offer you advice and guidance regarding the plan or surveys you may require and arrange for our consultants to carry out a site visit. The consultant will meet with you on site to discuss the project and your requirements, including any specific details required for the planning application. At this point, measurements and photographs will be taken of the site to ensure any schemes we put together are of the utmost accuracy.
Our experienced team will then put together the Landscaping Scheme documentation, liaising with yourself regarding any further details required and any existing documents or designs that will be integral to the plan. White label documents can be put together enabling you to easily incorporate our schemes into your own and acting as an extension of your own services.
Upon completion of the initial Landscaping Scheme, you will be invited into our offices to go through the plans in detail, making any necessary alterations. Our aim is to make the planning process just that little bit easier, so we will work closely with you until you are completely happy.
