“I can only recommend not to perform a planning application on your own or with your own architect, instead you need AFA planning consultants.
I strongly recommend everyone to use your services as you know very well what want the planning.
Also your free pre advice studying my 1st application failure was making me confident to apply again. I only listen your advices and it worked!
The second application was a great success thanks to your professionalism. Everyone should use your services on the first application. I would have saved time and money if I would have used your services the first time, instead I lost 10 weeks and paid 2 applications!
The dossier you created for the application was clear and perfect, easy to understand by non-specialist.
In addition your specialist was very nice and helpful whenever I had questions, before, during and after the application.
In short I am very happy with your services and my extension would have never been built without AFA.
I will never thank you enough for your great help!


“Thank you for your work, it is very impressive. I cannot now imagine the application standing a better chance of succeeding than with your report. It is very professional as one would expect, but more than that it is clinically precise. Just what I wanted. Many thanks.” Mr DM (East Sussex) Click for more testimonials
