I have used Progress Planning on major house-builder applications for years. They have a thorough understanding of Local Plans within Homes Counties and North London. Having the benefit of working in both the public and private sector they not only have an excellent commercial awareness but have first hand experience of how Local Planning Authorities actually operate. I would highly recommend Progress Planning to anyone seeking consent on a residential-led opportunity.

Progress Planning came up with a suggested strategy that had been overlooked by others. I had not worked with them previously, but they had been recommended to me. The result was we secured our planning consent, in circumstances where many professionals had given us 'no chance'. They were well priced, provided good attention to detail, from professionals who left me with the impression that they were as committed to securing the successful outcome as I was. I would certainly work with them again and have recommended them to other clients.
