The entire planning process with The RPP was a partnership in creating the concept we wanted for installing some high-end glamping pods, lifting the diversity of use for our smallholding within our area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ideas were developed into objectives, ensuring that the overall ecology of our natural surroundings were enhanced. The whole package of planning, including managing other specialists, ensured complete alignment at all times. It was a great pleasure for me that RPP took this lead and secured our planning approval.
The RPP are superb and knowledgeable professionals who deliver high-quality and effective results. We have used them on two separate projects and were delighted each time.
We used The RPP in Spring 2022 to gain planning on a holiday letting property. I am very pleased that we decided to use The RPP as it was essential for our business to gain this permission. They carried out the work swiftly, professionally and successfully producing an excellent document to put before local planning officers. I was kept up to speed at every step of the way with friendly and proactive members of their team. Can thoroughly recommend them.
We have used The Rural Planning Practice many times to consult on all matters in relation to planning. We have a complex rural plot and a challenging neighbourhood to contend with. They completely took the stress out of the situation and managed it in a highly professional but open and transparent way. The whole team care about their clients, they understand the vision that you are wanting to create. As working professionals with very small children, embarking on our planning projects felt daunting until we found The RPP. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
I have used The Rural Planning Practice for many years. They are efficient, knowledgeable and always get the end result that we require. I would recommend for advice and for obtaining planning permissions.
Huge thanks to The Rural Planning Practice, your help has been very much appreciated. The resulting comments in the Decision Notice do feel considerably more proportionate than the initial feedback from the planning officer to the first application. I am so pleased I contacted The RPP. Thank you again, and all the very best to you too.
