We worked with PES on two major pieces of evidence base work relating to landscape and wind turbine development to principally support the preparation of our Local Plan.

The work was completed to a high standard and has been an important element to inform our policy approach on this matter in our Local Plan. Throughout the process, we had a good working relationship which meant our requirements were clearly understood. A degree of flexibility was shown as the project methodology evolved and was tested through initial work to ensure the outcomes were robust and fit for purpose.

The final reports were thorough, well presented and we have been provided with a robust piece of work that we can rely on to support policy development.

I have been using the services of PES Ltd since 2011 and over that time we have developed a strong working relationship. Graham’s professional approach together with his skill and knowledge have steered us through all manner of complex planning issues including obtaining new planning permissions and conversions (commercial and residential) within the Green Belt.

Graham is always positive, punctual and discreet and I have no hesitation in recommending the services of PES Ltd.

Living in a Conservation Area and Green Belt we knew that it was going to be extremely difficult to obtain planning permission for the redevelopment of outbuildings on land we had to rear of our property. We decided that the only way to have a ‘fighting chance’ of achieving this was to use an expert in this field. Graham Bradford of PES Ltd had been recommended to us.

We can honestly say Graham was excellent throughout the process and without a doubt, it was because of his knowledge, experience and expertise that we decided to trust his judgment that the LPA’s decision to refuse the application was flawed, and to appeal. We obtained full planning permission for our new house in the green belt at the appeal we so desperately wanted.

We would highly recommend using PES Ltd.
