Planning Success & Planning to Succeed

The Town and Country Planning Team at JHWalter deliver success time after time on a broad range of projects.

  • Housing Development - Gosberton
  • Commercial Development - Sutterton
  • Housing Development - Hogsthorpe
  • Commercial Development (Sugar Silo) - Sutterton
  • Rural Diversifaction - Dry Doddington
  • Housing Development - East Markham
  • Commercial Development - Metheringham
  • Housing Development - Saxilby

As the planning system has become ever more complicated, it has never been more important to start a scheme with a sound strategy and carry out diligent preparation. This ensures that if an application is refused, it is oven ready to take through the appeals process.

Partner Steve Catney who leads the team commented “I just love receiving the notification of planning approval for a scheme, a real champagne moment“.

Steve and planners James Lambert and Alistair Anderson are assisted by Peter Welch who provides both digital and hand drawn illustrations and plans.
