Stephen Little & Associates - Due Dilligence

By: Stephen Little & Associates  05/12/2011

In a planning context the term due diligence refers to the continued surveillance of specific planning files and / or general planning and development documents which may be relevant to client interests.

This could involve monitoring local authorities for pertinent planning applications, reviewing recently published local or national guidance and policy documents, assessing the implications of new or updated statutory instruments.

We provide this service as a matter of course for our clients when engaged on other projects on their behalf.
