We offer a link to a personal one-to-one planning advisory and consultancy service from a close team of local associates. It is based on the team’s extensive knowledge and experience of the UK's planning system in its historical perspective; and the local and national political climate that shapes decision-making and policy formulation.
The intention is to further the cause of planning as a positive tool for the creation of the places and spaces needed in a rapidly changing social and economic environment.
Our team is led by a former Chief Officer and Corporate Director in local government, who was responsible for wide-ranging projects, personnel and budgetary management; including development plans (from inception to adoption); capital schemes of major town centre enhancement and conservation works; promoting and guiding to delivering major development and regeneration schemes; and leading, motivating and managing multi-disciplinary teams to deliver against inevitably challenging budgets and time constraints. The company associates also have additional experience and skills based on their many years of past work experience in various planning fields at senior levels.
Our team has advised private sector clients in relation to policy, development and design issues for a range of projects within both the East Riding and East Midlands areas.
Memberships of professional institutes include; the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and also the Institute of Historic Buildings and Conservation (IHBC), as well as post-graduate management qualifications. Associate members of the team also have full professional qualifications in related and complimentary fields.
If you have need of advice about, explanation of, or wish to test a proposal against, the planning system; we can help.
Sound advice at the outset can save both time and money, before a project is committed to the formal processes. Similarly, advice regarding policy changes and the ability to influence these can create valuable potential for new development.
Together with associated professional design and surveying contacts and other specialist environmental and development links, our planning services offer can facilitate the full range of consultancy assistance in support of the delivery of your project, should the preliminary evaluation be positive.
