“Mike was personally recommended to me as a highly competent professional individual with an excellent track record and one who relishes the challenges that come with planning applications.

Mike is gifted with excellent communication skills which facilitate sensitive negotiations and with the personal, hands-on approach that he adopts, he is able to achieve his aspirations.

When I appointed Mike at a time of crisis with a planning application, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge, past experience and his contacts. I found him to be a cool, calm, level-headed thinker who works well under pressure and who is very focussed and highly motivated on getting the job in hand done. He is very receptive, quick to respond to all enquiries and offered us a full package at a sensible cost.

I would not hesitate to engage Mike’s services again in the future.  He worked cohesively with my team and facilitated our planning application. A nice kind gentleman who remained interested in the scheme even after his role had come to an end.”
