Ken Parke Planning Consultants Ltd was set up in January 2003 and has fast become one of the most prominent planning practices in the area.

With clients varying from property developers, plc’s, land owners, affordable housing providers, lobby and interest groups to private individuals and householders, Ken has strong opinions about good planning practice and development control and is well known for his straight talking, no nonsense approach.

Planning can be a difficult and frustrating business, however, with their methodology and expertise, Ken and his team of chartered town planning consultants aim to make the journey through the planning process as painless as possible whilst achieving the best results for their clients.

The practice has dealt with many appeals including public inquiries, informal hearings and written representations. The firm is familiar with the procedures and individuals within the various Local Authorities including the political processes and pride themselves on their negotiation and problem solving skills.
