The planning consultancy that is…


Most of the projects we work on need a multi-stage approach. Our strategies take you step-by-step from where you are at the moment to where you need to be.


Securing planning consent is about people and process. We form mutually respectful working relationships with planning officers to build a strong case for your project.


Every planning project we work on is unique. We draw on 30 years’ experience to put together creative strategies that secure the permissions you need.

Planning consultancy services

Our understanding of planning law and precedent means we have secured planning consent for a wide range of properties and developments. We work on both large scale residential developments in villages and beyond as well as smaller scale residential developments such as infills and edge of settlement proposals. We also develop strategies to obtain permission for new dwellings of exceptional quality under Paragraph 80, the residential conversion of commercial and agricultural buildings under Class Q permitted development rights and use Prior Notification applications to secure planning permission to create new agricultural buildings.
