Strategic Planning - The Company

Strategic Planning was formed in 2003 and is today one of Northern Ireland’s largest planning consultancies with a staff of 13, five of whom are former Planning Service employees. In addition to planning consultancy, we provide advice to clients on public relations and public affairs and specialise in political lobbying and community/ stakeholder consultation on planning matters. We are the only consultancy in Northern Ireland to offer these integrated services making us a strong and innovative market leader in this sector.

Our planning consultants carry out: • site appraisals/ feasibility studies; • advice on Area Plans; • prepare and submit planning applications; • carry out environmental assessments; • represent clients at planning appeals and public inquiries; • prepare masterplans/ concept statements; • conduct land availability assessment and • prepare and co-ordinate objections.

Public Relations/ Public Affairs involves providing support to planning and development proposals through: • community and stakeholder consultation • lobbying of politicians

In February 2009, Strategic Planning was awarded the Royal Town Planning Institute Small Consultancy of the Year for 2008. Strategic Planning is also ISO 9001 accredited, Constructionline and Achilles Registered.
