Client Testimonials

“Southern Planning have managed our planning matters for many years. They have guided both our forward strategic planning and our applications with foresight and skill and have proved a competent and responsive partner in the growth of our business”.

Andrew Sellick of Gawthorpe Estates

"Southern Planning Practice's breadth of experience and nuanced approach to both our requirements and those of local councils has been fundamental to achieving our planning goals for several years. Their friendly team is always on hand to consult with and has assisted in every aspect of obtaining permissions, through to project completion. Within the last year their work with us has ranged from drawings by their in-house architect, the sourcing of engineers, and liaising with third parties to obtain reports necessary for planning conditions, and of course the writing up and submission of applications."

Azureus Homes

"I chose Southern Planning Practice to assist with my planning application. Alice was there throughout the whole process offering options, advice and support. I found her to be friendly, professional and most importantly she saw my vision and understood it. Even though it was a relatively small project it ended up taking a lot of time and energy and she was fantastic throughout the whole ordeal. I highly recommend SPP."

Ms Hardy, Private Landowner

“Southern Planning Practice have been engaged on a number of projects for the farm that have all resulted in notable successes and outcomes, including the grant of planning permission allowing the farm to open up to the public, along with a visitor centre, restaurant and farm shop (within a National Park). They are highly knowledgeable, professional and always know how tackle the most complex project. I would not hesitate to recommend them."

Mr Noonan, Sky Park Farm Owner
