Why Choose TheTownPlanner

The extensive experience gained has provided Jane with a rare mix of knowledge and skills which equips her well to deal with all your town planning needs, whether you are a landowner, property owner, developer, resident, architect or other construction-related professional, Councillor, or a community needing advice and support.

Jane has a thorough practical understanding of how local planning authorities work and she has a strong insight into the issues that arise from both an applicant and an objector’s perspective and how to find creative solutions to resolve them.  This gives Jane the unique ability to cut through the jargon and complexities of planning, and to guide clients through the planning process throughout Scotland and England.

Engaging in the planning process for what will be the first time for many clients can be off putting. The world of town planning is full of jargon, policies to be complied with and complicated procedures to be followed.  Your project will be personally managed ensuring your needs are met. If meetings are necessary, these will be arranged at a mutually agreeable location.  Customer service and satisfaction are very important to us. As the client you will be treated fairly and we will act with integrity, honesty and transparency. TheTownPlanner Ltd knows how important every project is to our clients, regardless of scale and will always commit to tell you how it really is rather than leading you up the garden path! TheTownPlanner Ltd will work very hard to get the outcome you want. 

Whatever your planning requirement is, big or small,  TheTownPlanner is here to help.  TheTownPlanner can advise you and represent you at all stages in the planning process, whether it be in writing and/or in person at meetings, public meetings, and appeals hearings. 

TheTownPlanner will do all the planning work so that you don’t have to!



May I compliment you on a very ‘human’ and approachable style – not something planners are renowned for (possibly unfairly!) J.H. (Grantown-On-Spey)

TheTownPlanner assembled a very concise report in planning speak which targeted each and every objection. The report submitted by TheTownPlanner blew the objections out of the water D.W. (Kingussie)

Following a recent application by a neighbour to commercially develop a field at the bottom of my garden,  Jane provided advice on relevant planning legislation and helped compose an objection letter for submission to the Planning Department.   The applicant subsequently withdrew his application as the Planning Officer advised that it would not be approved because of the impact on the surrounding properties.  I wonder if this would have been the case had we not received such detailed and appropriate advice from Jane.

Jane is both friendly and professional, and offers a wealth of experience relating to planning matters and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services. J.W. (Cumbria)
