At Bushton Farm we had a challenging planning proposal and Kevin Haines of Haines construction recommended RCC Town Planning Consultancy. We followed this recommendation and found Richard to have a great deal of knowledge and a positive attitude throughout the application. Our landlord was surprised at our result and commented “you must have engaged a very good planning advisor”. Richard was able to answer questions promptly. Also involved in this case was Max Seally of White Avon Consultancy in an agricultural capacity.
We would highly recommend using RCC Town Planning Consultancy. We originally had a very contemporary design in a rural setting and RCC were realistic about our chances as we were met with local opposition. Having taken the advice of Richard and his team, after Richard had had extensive communications with the planning officer, we withdrew the application and re-designed the proposal. Richard and his team understood the elements of the design with which we did not want to compromise and with their help in liaising with our architect we came up with a new design following the points that the planning officer made and as a result we made a successful application.
Without the input from RCC this would certainly not have been achieved and we are very thankful for all they did for us.
We would highly recommend using the expertise of RCC Town Planning Consultancy when applying for planning consent. We had a difficult experience initially when dealing with the planning department but Richard and his team were able to guide us through the process resulting in a positive outcome, we will be using them again, many thanks.
Having used Richard Cosker in a previous planning application which led to a successful decision notice, we had no hesitation in seeking his expert help and advice on achieving planning permission for a second agricultural dwelling that was proving to be difficult.
His expert knowledge and tenacity helped guide us through the negotiations putting us in a strong position when faced with the minefield of questions and problems received from the planning officers.
Thanks to Richard and his team we are pleased to say we have now received planning to go ahead with this building which without his help was becoming doubtful.
The team at RCC gave clear and concise advice throughout the project. They were able to forward a very good scheme to the planning department complying with all relevant policies. Communication was very good for the entire length of proposals and discussions resulting in a good outcome.
Richard and his team have been very helpful in assisting us getting our agricultural workers dwelling planning application granted. He was able to advise and highlight any possible issues before they might occur during the application process. He kept us informed at all stages. Once again many thanks RCC Town Planning for all your hard work.
We have received excellent service from RCC Town Planning Consultancy, who recently worked with us on a planning application for a two storey extension.
Richard Cosker provided advice on realistic options and used his expertise to suggest a design solution which we had not previously considered. We are very pleased to have been granted the full permission. We would definitely use RCC again and would recommend them to friends and family.
Richard Cosker was recommended to us by our architect. Although we thought our project was viable, we felt there might be problems. Fortunately Richard’s persistence and professionalism meant that our application was eventually accepted. As amateurs, we would never have thought of some of the areas which should be covered in the information supporting an application or the in-depth knowledge of planning which Richard displayed. We were at all times kept informed of progress. His work was first rate.
RCC Town Planning Consultancy have been very supportive in a situation where we were certain of an appeal being required. Although it has been a prolonged effort, Richard gained us the permission on our second attempt! We are over the moon that finally we can move forward with our vision for the house, Richards attention to detail and advice has been first class.
We would not hesitate to recommend the services of RCC Town Planning Consultancy. The service provided is friendly and approachable yet highly professional, with the intricacies of the planning process explained simply yet informatively. Their service exceeded our expectations in terms of efficiency, professionalism and helpfulness.
Yet again RCC Town Planning have successfully helped me navigate the complex and difficult planning process. Their judgement and comprehensive knowledge were key to the project’s success. I could not have achieved this result on my own.
RCC Town Planning have successfully secured our planning permission for a complicated development site. We were in a difficult position having invested in this project and been let down by our partners. Richard Cosker gave us good advice, recommended other professionals that we needed and helped keep costs down. It was good to have someone that we could trust especially as we were slightly in the dark about the planning issues. We would highly recommend him and his team.
We have been very impressed with the service provided by RCC Town Planning Consultancy. Richard Cosker giving us excellent advice based on his wealth of experience. We needed change of use from Commercial to Residential for our garage site. This was expected to be a difficult and time consuming process. However Richard and his team achieved the required permission in less than three months from being appointed as our agent. We therefore thoroughly recommend his consultancy.
Coming to the end of a residential conversion with the house on the market and under offer, the Council decided there were design issues contrary to the planning permission. We were under severe time pressure but Richard managed to speedily draw up a new application and also resolve an issue concerning a planning condition relating to a required bat roost. Happily the Council approved and the sale went through. Using someone with good contacts e.g. ecological consultants proved essential in the end.
I would like to express my thanks at the efficient, effective, helpful and friendly way you and your team worked to secure my Certificate of Lawfulness, I am sure we would never have achieved this without your assistance. You carried out all aspect promptly and kept me informed at all times as to what was happening. You can be assured that I will highly recommend your services to anyone else in need of planning advice. Thank you.
We were very pleased we have been with the services of Richard Cosker of RCC Town Planning Consultancy. The company handled quickly and efficiently all details of our application to change the use of our office building into residential apartments. Any problems were quickly resolved and our application was submitted according to plan. The granting of permission was of PDR was successful a few days in advance of the statutory expected date. I have no hesitation in recommending RCC Town Planning Consultancy.
On behalf of Gaiger Solar Ltd, we would like to thank RCC Town Planning for their work on the successful granting under delegated powers of planning permission for our 20MW solar farm in Trowbridge. This application was always going to be a difficult one due to being in a Greenbelt area, but RCC Town Planning carefully and expertly put together a planning application that received only one objection and many letters of support. Throughout the whole process RCC Town Planning kept us fully up to date with everything and kept to the timescales required in what has ended up being a time critical project. We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of service that we have received from RCC Town Planning, and would recommend their services to anyone.
After many years of disappointment working with various planning consultants we fortunately found RCC Town Planning Consultancy. With Richard Cosker’s expertise, knowledge and highly professional services a full planning permission was granted. This was a complicated application with many difficult and sensitive issues. Richard dealt with each stage promptly and we are extremely grateful for the friendly support and constant communication he provided. We highly recommend RCC and cannot thank Richard and his team enough.
Richard and Victoria of RCC Town Planning Consultancy were a complete joy to work with, they offered a comprehensive service and talked through each stage in layman’s terms, which we believe is the key to explaining the many complex rules around planning, so we as clients were able to fully understand each stage of the process. In our case the change of use application for our business (www.gentlearttattoostudio.co.uk) was one of the more controversial applications and RCC were able to secure it for us. I would recommend anyone to use their service.
We could not recommend Richard and his team highly enough. We found them wholly professional throughout the process of applying for planning permission for an outdoor arena at out new family home. With a large renovation project it was great to hand this particular section over to Richard and his team to deal with, they required no monitoring or chasing but kept us informed at all times. It was not entirely straightforward since we were looking for a larger than usual size arena, which was granted due to the super application. Thank you Richard and team, we love our new arena.

Sixpenny Nurseries have a small group of nurseries in Wiltshire. Their lease in Devizes was ending and new premise was a priority. RCC discussed possible options with them but a number of possible sites raised issues concerning the potential impact of the proposed use on traffic and residential amenity of an area.
RCC was asked by the architects for this job (PKA Architects) to assist them by submitting a planning application for a farm diversification proposal. The proposal, on a dairy farm, was to establish a micro ice cream factory within an existing small agricultural building whilst then building an additional linked building to house a café.
