The Company

We operate across England representing a range of clients, from the private sector, public sector and community sector organisations in a whole range of planning and development work, including development management, spatial planning strategy and policy formulation, and planning research for Development Plans. The planning and development service combines a sound commercial appreciation of the development process with extensive experience of private consultancy and public sector planning.

We also operate across Central, Eastern, Southern and Northern England, representing individuals and businesses in a whole range of planning and development work. We offer the best honest and most up to date planning and development advice enabling clients to make the appropriate decision for them. Our planning services are always tailor made for each client and we provide a flexible and highly responsive approach to all work. We benefit from a loyal client base who come to us for all their planning work; and we have strong relationships with a number of local Architects, Chartered Surveyors and other specialist consultants to help our clients develop their projects from end to end.

We will give you honest planning advice; this includes telling you if we think you stand no real potential of getting support for your proposal. We have found that our clients respect this honesty and it has successfully generated repeat business from many of our loyal clients.

We deal with all aspects of planning including assessing the development potential of sites, submitting and pursuing applications for planning permission or Listed Building consent; advertisement consent; or if necessary handling appeals. We work with a number of local associates (including architects, surveyors, tree specialists, ecologists and flood risk consultants) who can also provide the whole range of services any development needs from inception to completion. We can also help you apply for a Lawful Development Certificate or help you deal with planning enforcement matters.

We can also help you to promote your land or other premises for future development through the Local Plan or Neighbourhood Plan processes.
