We were recommended Chris Pipe to conduct a planning application for a new build, on land that is currently been used as a car park and in a conservation area. We knew we needed someone who could deal with this sensitively, but thoroughly and, who would be professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of planning, design and planning legislations. Chris Pipe was all of these and more.

She was personable, professional and accommodating on her first visit and instantly we knew she was the right person for the job. Her knowledge is second to none as was her ability to liaise with planning department to get the initial stages completed successfully and without complications.

The design and final stages were completed also without problem, again, due to Chris’s consummate professionalism. The granting of planning permission on the 4th of April 2017 was entirely due to the thorough detail Chris had put into our application and despite 24 objections and having to go before the Planning Committee, went through first time without any amendments or alterations.

We would thoroughly and, without hesitation, recommend Chris Pipe and her company Planning House to anyone needing any planning services. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Chris.
