With just ten days to go before my listed building consent appeal deadline I realised I was out of my depth; without help I wouldn’t have had any hope of success. A quick google found Planning Places and I sent an email. Two days later David Hickie came over for a site visit. We chatted for a while, and took some measurements and photographs. In good time I received a draft appeal document from David and after a few minor amendments it was submitted. From the moment I met David I was sure I had probably found the right guy for the job. I wasn’t wrong; yesterday we received the Inspector’s decision. “The appeal is allowed and listed building consent is granted …”. Thank you David! Ifor P. – Faringdon, Oxon.
David…grateful for your good advice on the options open to us and and your design expertise and flair – and then gaining permission for all the alterations and extensions…JO
He really seems to understand the system, the details of the rules and policies…He is good at establishing cordial relations with the planners to arrive at reasonable consensual solutions. He is easy to deal with, and at all times has in mind practicable and economic solutions. Above all, he is effective!…AG
