Solely focused on your objectives

An established planning consultancy dedicated to the best in service and solutions

Planning Insight has become one of the most dynamic and well-respected planning consultancies in London

Meet the team

Planning Insight were appointed at a time when the planning process for our scheme had become an uphill battle. Peter, Troy and Alex quickly became an integral part of the project team. Their insightful advice and meticulous preparation / review of the validation reports greatly contributed to the achievement of positive feedback at the pre-application stage – and at the subsequent approval of full application. Planning Insight consulted with us throughout the process, ensuring the final submission designs fully reflected our requirements. I am extremely pleased with the quality of their service.

Dr Alex Collins Arthur,

Chairman, The London Ghana SDA Church Building Committee

Would highly recommend Peter and his team for any planning advice and help with your applications. They're absolutely brilliant. Real experts in their field.

Harry Keen,

London Green

Peter and his team provided expert advice which ensured that the planning application was watertight before being submitted. This undoubtably helped to ensure that a successful outcome was achieved, and planning permission granted. We are very pleased with the quality of service that was provided by the team at Planning Insight.

Ma’an Alyan,

Private Developer

Planning Insight provide a very professional and friendly service delivering excellent results. In my development, Peter managed to substantially reduce my CIL liability by £70,000. The whole process was expertly managed achieving a positive outcome within a couple of weeks.I was so impressed with the teams performance, I have instructed Garry to manage another planning project for my company. They have already established themselves as an integral part of my team.

Iqbal Vesamia,

Amsaal Property Developments

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.

Sukhee Bains,

Owner

Following extensive discussions with officers and despite significant local objection our 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.

Private client,

Owner

Planning Insight have worked tirelessly to deliver permission and discharge the conditions in order for the project to be constructed. We have now engaged Planning Insight to deliver the next phase of development. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others for their detailed knowledge and dedication.

Golden Glory Estates,

Owner
