Consultancy For Planning Professionals

Support your clients with added planning expertise

Whether you are an architect, a surveyor, a solicitor or someone else within the building industry, we can work with you to successfully meet your client’s needs. We can give you access to experienced planning experts to improve the success rate of your client’s applications and appeals.

All our planners are actually full time senior council planning officers who currently work for other councils, as well as other planners who have substantial experience in that role. This means they are able to represent your interests using their special insight into how the system works and how other planners think.

Let Us Handle Your Appeals, So You Can Focus On The Job In Hand

If you’re an architect or planner, you may be interested to know that we can provide Planning Appeal services where an application has been refused. This allows you to concentrate on other areas of work, whilst leaving the complexities of the appeal to our experts. In this way, we can act on a consultancy basis reporting directly to you, rather than your client. As you’d expect, all matters are treated in the strictest of confidence.
