I called Planning House a little too late on a Friday afternoon and Chris Pipe answered my call immediately; this is already a sign of someone committed to their profession! Chris spent a considerable amount of time discussing my planning queries and assisting me to form a robust argument to support my case. Chris’ knowledge of her field of expertise, coupled with her extensive experience of the inner workings of the planning department, means she has all the answers at her fingertips, and knows precisely which arguments are likely to fly, and which are not. I highly recommend Planning House as my experience of working with Chris was excellent.
