INDEPENDENT & CREATIVE PLANNING ADVICE

Hume Planning Consultancy Ltd focuses on providing independent and creative planning advice to a range of development partners predominantly in London and the South East region.

The practice prides itself on providing practical, professional input and has a reputation for integrity and long term relationships with clients. The company recognises that it is crucially important to understand the project objectives and to appreciate the risks as well as the rewards of each scheme. Advice is individually tailored to meet the needs of clients which minimises unnecessary work so that fee resources are used effectively. This approach reduces delays and the company seeks to drive projects forward at all times.

The planning system has experienced significant change in recent years. On occasion this can result in a decision making structure that focuses excessively on the processing of applications and does not recognise the need to focus on creative place making and the wider benefits (including economic and social) of sustainable, well designed development.

The practice seeks to focus on highlighting the positive benefits of quality development and facilitating investment with development partners in order to shape attractive well functioning places that can be looked back upon with a sense of pride in years to come.
