Very Good - New Home

We instructed Planning Insight following a complex planning challenge upon securing a new dwelling at our site. The team advised us to submit a new planning application, supported by a comprehensive Planning Statement with a robust justification for the proposal. Following extensive discussions with officers and despite significant local objection the application was approved without the need to go to planning committee. Following the approval, the team were able to secure further increases to the internal floor space, with the most recent approval for a large three double bedroom dwelling. The team’s local experience and tenacious negotiating skills were crucial in securing our permission and I cannot thank them enough

792-808, High Road and, 2-10 Goodmayes Road

Planning Insight have provided planning services on our site in Goodmayes since 2016. Their efforts in providing planning advice and statements have secured planning permission on appeal together with an award of costs against the Council's behaviour. Since the appeal the team have also secured important amendments to the scheme to enable the operator, Travelodge, to take on the hotel element of the scheme. We thank Peter and the team for their tireless efforts in securing permission and delivering sound advice throughout the whole process. We would have no hesitation in using their services on our other properties and recommending them to others.

Excellent service and advice from Planning Insight !

Planning Insight have been instrumental in securing planning permission for our development in Newbury Park. From instruction, Peter and the team handled the co-ordination of consultants and the architects to ensure the scheme submitted and all supporting information was robust. They devised innovative strategies to reduce the planning risk on the project and worked tirelessly in negotiating the section 106 contributions. I will be using Planning Insight on all our projects going forward and happily recommend them as planning consultants
