We can unreservedly recommend RCC Town Planning Consultancy - Richard and Vicky were extremely professional and efficient at all times and worked hard to achieve an exceptional result for us.
RCC Town Planning have been unreservedly helpful throughout the whole process of planning. They are always very friendly and completely professional. Our application was by no means straight forward.
They work brilliantly with all other professionals involved, architects, engineers, etc, a real team effort, making sure all points are covered by the relevant parties and never missing a small detail that add to and might make a difference to the success of the application.
Their own report was also excellent, gained by their wide experience and knowledge. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
We have valued the expertise of Richard Cosker and his team in helping us obtain planning permission on a redundant chapel, but at the same time there was recognition of the sensitivity needed for this project
Following a failed attempt to achieve Planning Permission for a very sensitive and tasteful extension to a country home I pursued a recommendation to seek the help of RCC Town Planning led by Richard Cosker.
Three months on and with minimal effort on my part and despite the property falling under the AONB restrictions the Planning Permission has been granted with no changes to the original application.
Thank you to Richard and his team for taking all the pain out of what can be a stressful process and for achieving a successful application.
Myself and my family are so grateful to RCC planning consultancy for their incredibly reassuring guidance throughout the whole process of obtaining consent for a prior notice on a Dutch barn for conversion to a dwelling, under Part Q of the planning regulations. We have been most impressed with how the RCC team have managed our expectations and ensured meticulous attention to detail throughout the prior discussions and in the preparation of the application. To obtain prior notice consent without any objections or concerns having been expressed by the council or the public is a testimony to the quality of the submission; it left no stone unturned and addressed every likely scenario that the planning officers were likely to question or be concerned about.
For these reasons we would not hesitate in recommending RCC Planning Consultancy to anyone; To sum up, a first class experience in every way.
Richard is very approachable and responds quickly to any queries. He has advised us in the past on the advisability of putting in for planning and we are delighted that Richard and his team have successfully got planning approval through for us to enlarge the present holiday accommodation and/or as an ancillary annexe with no hiccups and well within the 8 week period allocated.
We would whole- heartedly recommend them
Thank you so much for dealing with my planning application and I just want to say what a fantastic job you have done. Quick and efficient and I would highly recommend RCC.
Richard and his team at RCC Town planning acted for us to resubmit a planning application for holiday lets in place of a 5 bay new build stable block with planning permission. Unfortunately the application was refused by Wiltshire Council planners.
Richard recommended going to appeal. During our appeal against the refusal of Planning Permission RCC made the appeal process simple and effective using all there vast experience setting out convincing statements to the Inspectorate which ultimately allowed the appeal and our Planning Permission was granted.
I would not hesitate to use RCC Town Planning services in the future and would highly recommend them.
Thank you Richard & all your team.
Following work to the perimeter of our Grade II listed property we were informed by Wiltshire Council that we needed planning permission. We applied for retrospective planning permission and engaged RCC to advise us and take the process forward. Thanks to their professionalism, knowledge, expertise and persistence, having been initially objected to, RCC secured permission. We are in no doubt that without RCC we could not have secure a successful outcome.
Having bought the land and used it as an extension of our garden for well over 10 years without any concerns from neighbours or the council, we were quite shocked and upset to be facing a complaint earlier this year. With the welfare of our animals tied up in the success of the applications, the period was very stressful and emotional. Richard and Vicky led us through the process with great care and attention to detail and produced a very high quality set of applications based on sound arguments which was borne out in them being approved at first submission without any concerns raised by the planning officer.
Richard and Vicky and team really understood our situation and hand held us quite literally until the day permission was granted. They fully explained everything along the way and located, engaged and managed the many specialists that were needed to cover various issues and reports. So we are extremely thankful to them for making the journey much less stressful than it could have been and especially for always giving us the feeling that we had experts in our corner.
Thoroughly recommend their services.
Richard gave us very sound advice from the start as we considered what options were available to us for our redundant single story farm buildings. He guided us towards the most practical solution given our budgetary constraints and co-ordinated all aspects of the application. When some inconsistent conditions were proposed by the planning authority, Richard and Jenny showed a robust attitude and after explanations were offered, those conditions were dropped. We are very appreciative of their work and excited about our diversification.
Following a long neighbourly dispute about the use of our garden outbuilding we engaged Richard to apply for formal permission to use the building as a holiday let. Richard and his assistant Rachel drew up a detailed planning statement and followed through the application process and resulting queries in a thoroughly balanced and professional manner. The outcome was positive and I have already recommended RCC to others.
We retained the services of RCC Town Planning Consultancy to assist us in preparing and submitting a retrospective planning application to change the windows and a couple of other issues in a building that although not listed, apparently fell in the curtilage of neighbouring listed buildings.
The team are highly experienced and produce a professional, complete planning statement leaving absolutely nothing to be challenged. We dealt primarily with Vicky who kept on top of any comments posted, supplying responses where necessary and keeping us informed at every step.
We had a positive outcome on our first application and would definitely use Richard and his excellent team again. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring planning assistance.
Thank you for your rapid response and successful outcome to lifting the Section 106 planning agreement on our agricultural workers dwelling. The whole process went very smoothly and was professionally carried out.
We are very grateful for your efficient and very professional service to steer our planning application to a successful outcome. Considering that it was far from a straightforward case it proceeded to a satisfactory conclusion without any holdups.
This was entirely due to your comprehensive build of the case and the detail and foresight in covering all angles. Needless to say we would recommend RCC Town Planning to anyone without any hesitation.
Richard and his team at RCC planning acted for us during our appeal against the refusal of Planning Permission. They provided us with an efficient and effective service, which ultimately allowed the appeal and our Planning Permission was granted.
It was a complex situation, with a myriad of issues however, Richard and his team were able to break through the complexities and use their experience to draw out the relevant points and produce a compelling statement that met the Inspectorate’s needs, in helping them to make the right decision.
Richard and his team were the final push we needed and have the right formula in place, that was instrumental in getting our scheme over the line. We were able to allow them to do their job and the result shows that our faith in their ability was very worthwhile. Thank you for all of your help and we would highly recommend your services.
Richard and his team at RCC Town Planning Consultancy have successfully assisted us on numerous projects and planning applications in the Wiltshire area. Their excellent, clear and professional advice, gained from specialist knowledge of the planning system including local and national planning policy, environmental considerations and local concerns, together with advice of layouts and design has been invaluable to the success of our applications. They approach all matters with diligence, professionalism and commercial understanding. We look forward to working with them on our next project and would certainly recommend their services.
I am extremely pleased with this outcome and thanks for the help provided by Richard and Vicky. I have been involved with several planning applications with our local planning office and working with your firm has made a potentially painful experience both hassle free and straightforward.
We retained RCC to help solve what should have been a straightforward planning application in our garden. RCC brought clarity to the discussions and clearly set out to the planning authorities where their incorrect assumptions were. The work RCC did for us resulted in the planning application being passed and we were delighted with the work.
Latest case studies:
The applicants had tried to obtain planning permission for a second agricultural workers dwelling at their West Overton farm for a family member to live in. The dwelling was to replace a mobile home that had occupied the site for many years however the Council were now threatening enforcement action.
All applications for agricultural workers dwellings are complicated. They need to be presented to the local planning authority with a strongly set out case in the supporting statements. This proposal was for a third dwelling at this dairy farm and as such the challenges were even greater.
