We have recently used Insight Planning Services to obtain planning approval for our Grade 2 listed building. Our initial approach to the local planning dept. were problematic, however with Charlie on board things went very smoothly. Charlie is a good communicator and is quick to get a full understanding of client’s requirements. We can unreservedly recommend his services and wouldn’t hesitate to use him on future projects.

Really excellent service from Charlie. He took the time to take us through the planning process and was able to offer many ideas in the design of our project that we hadn't previously thought of. He dealt with the planning proposal and kept us regularly updated at all times. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone planning a project.

We received a fantastic service from Insight Planning and I have no hesitation in recommending this friendly and efficient company. Planning permission for our extension was granted today and we can't thank Charlie enough for the work he put in.
