planning strategy 

PlanSurv provides creative solutions to complex property and planning concerns in a continually changing legislative and economic environment. We also provide general planning and property advice on a range of issues including appeals and negotiations with local planning authorities.

Whether you're an individual looking to extend your house, a developer wanting to build housing and other properties or a landowner wishing to promote your land, our dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism can help to achieve your development goals.
