Your commercially astute local specialists
Our planning team is among the largest in the UK and includes a number of specialist consultants covering retail, housing needs, economic impact assessments, heritage and strategic development. Our work in multidisciplinary teams gives us unparalleled insight into the dynamics of commercial, residential and rural development. As a result, we take a commercial view of all aspects of the planning process. Clients find this hugely valuable in conjunction with our in-depth planning expertise plus the array of resources we offer as a large firm.
Our work has ranged from attaining planning permissions for mixed-use new settlements to the Private Rented Sector (PRS), education facilities to horse-racing facilities, research and development campuses to business parks, new homes to conversions of heritage assets. Our clients range from major house builders to leisure organisations, developers to universities, housing associations to private investors. We can complement their in-house resources or act as their own team, embedded in their business if that’s the best approach to serve that client to undertake a portfolio review or coordinate a planning development team.
The planning world is a contentious and highly complex one and your reasons for needing our help are likely to be as varied as the sectors we work in; but no matter that reason, we pride ourselves on understanding your needs so we can provide bespoke and valuable advice.
