About Us

Planning House is an independent town planning consultancy based in the North East and Midlands, specialising in securing planning consents for a wide range of development projects across the North East, Yorkshire and beyond.

Our experience, skills and services are there to enable clients achieve their development aspirations.  We take a pragmatic and personal approach for every project and each client receives a tailored planning service to meet their needs.

Planning House is commercially minded, ensuring that we help clients get the best value out of their land or property whilst providing clear and realistic advice at affordable prices.  However we’re also ex-public sector planners which means we also understand town planning issues from the Council’s perspective putting us in a strong position to be able to put forward the best possible case for our clients.

We have been awarded Smarter Planning Champion status by the Planning Portal. This confirms our commitment to follow best-practice guidelines for the submission of planning applications, saving time, money and carbon for clients and helping local authorities to process applications as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Planning House is a team of  Charter Town Planning Consultants who are members of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), fully trained and professionally qualified.  All members of the RTPI are bound by a Code of Professional Conduct setting out required standards of practice and ethics. The Institute requires planning professionals to meet and maintain high standards of competence and conduct themselves in a way that inspires trust and confidence in the profession.
