Our 50+ professionals provide you with access to a wider range of expertise than smaller competitors. We have extensive experience of dealing with local communities, landowners, developers and local planning authorities, mainly around our 5 offices in the East and West Midlands.  To ensure no conflicts of interest our Neighbourhood Planning services are focused beyond these locations, in the South West and North West of England.

You can rest assured that we will only accept commissions after a thorough internal check to ensure no conflict of interests with any landowning, developer or local authority clients.  For this reason we focus our Neighbourhood Planning work in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Lancashire, Cumbria, Yorkshire and Northumbria.
