“We contacted Paul for a particular issue, namely to assist us in our objection to a number of planning applications on a neighbouring site. Paul was willing and able to represent us in those matters at Local Authority Planning Meetings and articulated the points in a comprehensive, reasoned and thorough manner which was well received by the Authority.”

Appraisal Service

Our planning consultants ensure that our clients receive an unbiased service – we will provide honest advice on whether your plans are likely to be successful and offer strategies to make a successful outcome more likely. Our whole appraisal service provides you with a total review of development plan policy. We also talk with council officers in Northampton on an informal basis, to ascertain the likelihood of success and to determine what changes may need to be made to get a proposal processed successfully. This work enables us to give you our honest and expert opinion on how likely you are to receive the permissions you require.

Working with the local authorities, we can use our depth of local knowledge to ensure that you get the best possible results.

A Tailored Service

Our planning consultants gear each service around your own requirements – we have never seen a standard development proposal yet! So, whether you need a summary of key points or a report with all the fine details covered, you can be assured of the same top-quality service.

We believe that our knowledge of private and public planning sectors makes a big difference and ensures that we offer you the very best service.

Our planning consultants are qualified members of the Royal Town Planning Institute and therefore chartered town planners for Northampton. Contact us for more information on any of our services.
