Armstrong Rigg Planning

NameArmstrong Rigg Planning

Armstrong Rigg Planning was formed in August 2012 by Geoff Armstrong and Lynsey Rigg who established, and managed, the residential planning team at DPP for more than 15 years. They bring with them 28 years and 16 years of experience, respectively, gained in a variety of posts in both the public and private sectors during which they have advised a wide range of clients across the South East, South West and East of England on the means by which they can maximise the value of land and buildings through the planning system.

Geoff and Lynsey are supported by a team of planners with a wide range of experience in all types of planning, together with administrative support.

At Armstrong Rigg Planning we advise on all types of development including retail, housing, office and leisure, together with large mixed use developments working for a range of landowners, developers and private companies. We have particular experience in the residential sector, having long established relationships with a number of national housebulders, including Taylor Wimpey, Barratt Homes, Bellway Homes and Persimmon Homes, as well as more regional focussed housebuilders, including C&M Homes, Hopkins Homes and MJH Homes.

We offer a comprehensive, competitive and client focussed planning service spanning all aspects of planning, including strategy direction, planning law, planning applications and appeals, stakeholder consultation, land supply, EIA, project management, S106/CIL negotiation and the promotion of sites through the development plan process.

We are currently advising our clients on a wide range of projects, including residential schemes of between 10 - 1,500 dwellings for which we are seeking to secure viable and implementable planning permissions and/or allocations via the planning application, appeal and development plan processes.
