Why use us?

We provide communications and PR assistance on development projects at all stages of the planning and construction process.

David McFarlane, Director of SP Broadway

You could be:

• Promoting an area of land for allocation in a district council’s Local Plan
• Preparing to submit a planning application for a site for the first time
• Submitting a revised planning application following refusal of your initial proposals
• Submitting a ‘reserved matters’ application after ‘outline’ approval of your proposals
• Preparing for determination of your application by a council’s Planning Committee
• Getting ready to begin demolition / construction on your site once you have consent

In all these situations there will be people who you ought to be consulting with – whether it’s simply explaining your proposals to local councillors, or hearing the views of local residents before you submit a planning application for the first (or second) time.

We can organise and manage this process for you from start to finish:
