Recent recommendations:

Owen took on a stubborn planning issue that the developers, construction company and big name industry planning consultants had been unable to solve in 18 months.
Within two weeks of focused and prioritised service the engagement formalities were complete, an initial plan to tackle it had been formed, and it had been diligently completed (including site visits and multiple LPA visits) with significant cost savings on the alternative and  - just as important - lots of time saved.
For renewable energy based planning matters I couldn't suggest a better contact.

Daniel Kirk, Asset Manager, Magnetar Capital (Solar)

Owen successfully navigated the long, drawn-out quirks of the Local Planning Authority in a friendly and efficient manner while still retaining a smile on his face and keeping us sane. He provided a great service and Owen really knows his stuff. We will be using him again for future projects and have already recommended him to friends and neighbours.

Very many thanks from all at Pestalozzi for the thorough and inspiring contribution that you brought to our recent successful planning application. On this highly sensitive site, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we were delighted that our plans were so well received by residents, neighbours and planners alike for the insights and quality of your comprehensive reports and drawings.  Your recommendations and empathy with this site made the major contribution to the success of our application.
Chief Executive, Pestalozzi International Village Trust, on a consented major mixed-use scheme in an AONB

​From the outset, Owen proved to be a central part of the project team for the Gillsman’s Gardens project.  We were particularly impressed with his broad knowledge base and ‘can-do’ approach, which definitely saved us time and money in the long run.  His excellent masterplan and patient delivery during community engagement illustrated our proposals perfectly.

We have been extremely happy with the environmental planning and design services you have provided over the last few years.  The positive relationships you forge with Local Planning Authority officers also seems to work in our favour!
