With nearly thirty years of planning experience, Assent Planning Consultancy aims to help and guide you through the often difficult and complex world of the planning system. We aim to do this by working with you – not just for you - at all stages of the planning process, from your initial concepts to the realisation of your ideas.

We will talk to you during each step of the process, so that you know what is happening at all times, and we will discuss with you the most appropriate ways to go forward to achieve the best chance of success for you.

We will provide you with expert advice, knowledge and experience that are delivered in a personal, timely and cost effective way. We have the ability to solve any problems that are encountered along the way creatively and with innovation. We aim to get it right – first time, every time – to minimise delays and costs in pursuing your ideas through the planning process.

We can -

Prepare and submit all types of planning applications on your behalf

Speak at Planning Committees on your behalf in support of your application

Prepare and submit planning appeals if your application is refused
