Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Important Information


J & M Bodman Ltd, Urchfont

We have been very satisfied with the efficient and thorough way that our Planning Application was executed by Richard Cosker and are pleased with the subsequent successful Decision Notice. 

Marcus Flynn, East Hanney

Richard Cosker was recommended to us to present our planning application. This was for a difficult scheme that had been refused on previous occasions and we needed expert advice and experience to proceed. The project was represented in all areas by Richard Cosker including the appeal, the service we received was excellent Richard has an in-depth knowledge of planning through his experience within council organisations; this insight is invaluable, as with his confidence in leading the appeal process which is a real test of planning law and skill. The conclusion was that we had our application granted this July. This would not have been possible if we hadn’t used RCC Town Planning Consultancy. The appeal process and exactly how to present our case was handled with absolute detail, and great professionalism. I can only say when entering into this practice of planning and seeking a successful outcome, we would choose an expert every time and that’s very much what we got. Were completely delighted with our planning application and the service was brilliant.

We contacted RCC Town Planning Consultancy after the Council’s enforcement officer had raised issues about our manege and hardstanding not having planning permission. Richard dealt with the matter on our behalf quickly and took care of all matters in applying for retrospective planning permission. It was a great relief when that retrospective permission was granted.

After the years of waiting it was very gratifying that a successful result was achieved with such efficiency. We are very pleased to acknowledge the part that RCC Town Planning Consultancy played in that result.

Chris Combe, Roundway Hill Farm

I was very happy with the advice and you took all of the hassle out of the planning process which ran smoothly and achieved the desired result.

SH, Easton Royal

Richard Cosker was retained by us to sort out an application for change of use of our annex. I am confident that if we had simply applied by ourselves, we would have been turned down, flat. Even when it looked like the permission was likely to be passed but with an extra piece of procedural paperwork, Richard was able to rebuff that challenge, saving us money. Taking all that into context, I think the service was very good – and the fee was worth the investment.

James King, Uphill Farm, Urchfont

I would like to say that we were very pleased and impressed with the success of our planning application for an agricultural dwelling on our farm, I think the approach and attention to the specific details involved was just what was wanted, it was as though you were one of us and really wanted to succeed, and at the end of the day the cost was very reasonable, I shall be using your services again if needed in the future.
