AB Planning & Development Limited

Andrew Bateson is the proprietor of AB Planning and Development Limited - an independent planning consultancy based in Witney, Oxfordshire, which he established at the start of 2011. Andrew holds a BSc Honours degree in Town and Regional Planning from Dundee University, is a chartered member of the Royal Town Planning Institute and a member of the Federation of Small Businesses.

Throughout the last thirty years, Andrew has been regularly instructed as an expert witness at Inquiries and Hearings. In the last decade, instructions have tended to come from developers such as Banner Homes, Bovis Homes, Yeoman Homes, Wharf Land Investments and JR Baughan Limited. Andrew has also represented the Whipps Cross University Hospital and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trusts in London and at Hexham, Kent County Council’s Property Services Division, legal firms like Beachcroft and Hill Dickinson LLP, Hampton’s International, Brethren Gospel Hall Trusts, Parklake Hotels, Salmon Racing, Sweet Fuels and numerous private landowners.

The Company undertakes planning appraisals, prepares Planning Support and Design & Access Statements, provides plan designs for development proposals, submits planning applications, provides expert planning services for appeals and makes Development Plan and Neighbourhood Plan promotions/representations.

The Company is instructed by Banner Homes on residential projects in Sussex and Essex; by Salmon Racing on a Neighbourhood Planning project in Yorkshire; by JR Baughan Limited on residential projects in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire; and by a wide variety of private landowners, mainly across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Development designs are often prepared in house by AB Planning & Development but where clients have preferred architects they wish to employ, we are willing to work cooperatively alongside such practices. The Company also has surveying, legal, arboricultural, ecological, heritage and transport contacts from whom we can request assistance, when projects demand such services.

The office is well located in relation to the national transport network, so Bristol to the west, London to the east, the south coast towns, the Midlands and even parts of the north are all easily accessible within up to two hours.
