Our team of healthcare planning consultants and qualified Chartered Town Planners have provided comprehensive services of our clients and their medical premises throughout the UK for over 25 years.

Our advice can cover the whole planning process from the initial stage which can include seeking pre application advice through to the determination of a planning application or planning appeal, as well as dealing with any condition discharges.



Your Planning Permission

Obtaining planning permission for Healthcare and GP medical centres can involve a variety of stages, from planning appraisals, appeals, applications, enforcements, and assisting local communities/Parish Councils to secure new facilities as part of developments.

Our team of healthcare planning consultants ensures that whatever the requirements are, they are organised and managed in the shortest possible time frame and on the best terms.

We safeguard any potential risk or pitfalls and make sure they’re minimised with any advice we provided, having successfully managed and provided advice and guidance for countless private and NHS planning consultations.
