My approach to planning consultancy reflects three key values: being approachable, collaboration and professionalism. I believe that people like to have face to face contact and be given advice that suits their individual requirements. During our consultation, you tell me what you prefer and I will work with that.
Much of my work comes from recommendations from previous clients. I have found that people like to deal with me directly and not a faceless corporate entity. You will deal with me in person and nobody else, I have dedicated admin support to allow me to focus on doing your work.
I am established locally in the Plymouth area and have a growing name in the wider Devon and Cornwall area. I enjoy constructive working relationships with the officers in the Councils. My previous experience has given me a sound insight into how organisations work and what needs to be done to make the process run smoothly.
The profession is continually changing and being updated and I keep up to date with the local and national changes to give you the best chance of your planning application progressing through to the build stage.
“James was recommended to us, and we have no hesitation on recommending him on to others. He has helped us through a very difficult time with a planning application by neighbours that would have resulted in us being caused a lot of distress. His knowledge, understanding and honesty have guided us through this complex process, resulting in a satisfactory outcome. We couldn’t be more pleased, and would not likely have achieved this without his help. It may be short lived if this goes to appeal, but we know where to go for support! Thank you James.”
