Rollinson Planning Consultancy

NameRollinson Planning Consultancy

The company is an entirely independent town planning consultancy based in West Yorkshire and formed in March 2009 by Andy Rollinson.

Andy has over 30 years experience in both the public and private sectors. Before establshing his own practice he spent much of the previous decade as a Director of Turley Associates in its Leeds office and has significant knowledge of planning and associated applications and appeals work via written representations, hearings and Public Inquiries.

He has detailed knowledge of the Yorkshire and Humber region and has extensive experience within Lincolnshire, the East Midlands and the North East too. He has significant experience beyond these areas having also carried out consultancy work in Swindon, Crewe, Macclesfield, Winchester, Tewksbury, Basingstoke, Oxfordshire and Chichester.

The company provides honest and creative advice on a value for money basis and obtains all its work through referrals and repeat business from existing clients and other contacts.

What is most important is the ability to be able to make a credible planning case in support of a proposed development rather than the scale of the scheme or the instruction.

Whatever the size of the job the same "tell it how it is" approach is adopted to allow clients to make informed judgements.

Work is undertaken on behalf of a wide range of commercial, business and private clients on:-

  1. Applications for planning permission and other related consents such as Listed Building and Conservation Area Consents.
  2. Supporting work in discrete areas of applications made by other.
  3. Appeals against refusals of planning permission, Listed Building Consent and enforcement notices.
  4. Expert witness appearances at Informal Hearings and Public Inquiries.
  5. Negotiations and advice on S.106 requirements.
  6. Project management and professional team co ordination
