UPDATE: COVID-19

During the current pandemic and in accordance with Government advice on social distancing, Hume Planning Consultancy are now working remotely away from our main central office.

Please be assured that we are operating at normal capacity and will ensure that all existing and new projects are carried forward efficiently and effectively.

The majority of Local Planning Authorities still operating (albeit remotely) and we continue to be in regular contact with officers and other key organisations.

Contact: Our main office number is diverted to our external offices allowing us to be contacted in the usual manner. We are also able to conduct video conferencing with clients and LPAs from a number of platforms – should this be required.

Site Visits: Subject to prior agreement on a case by case basis, we may be able to carry out unaccompanied site visits, however this only applies to open sites. We are therefore currently unable to undertake internal inspection of buildings or to meet with clients on site.

Please do contact us should you need to discuss your projects further in light of the above information.
