Planning resilience and building control, on demand.

Our planning resilience and building control services work with you to meet shortages in capacity, determine incoming applications no matter how big or small, and consistently deliver a high standard of service that’s unmatched, all within short delivery timescales for a fixed fee. Long gone are the days of traditionally commissioning individual agencies.

More for you, on demand.

With decades of local authority experience between us, our expert planners intimately understand your needs. We rapidly get up to speed on local nuance and subtlety and can take away the pain of time consuming and complex day-to-day planning and building control tasks, freeing you up to focus on the important issues that better serve your community.

Control, on demand.

With flexible contract lengths you can dial-up or dial-down, our services are designed to meet your department’s exact needs. Our resilient team of over 100 experts can support you at any time, accounting for sickness and staffing levels, all while maintaining the same high levels of service.

Planning with peace of mind

Our ability to forecast helps your team better estimate the time and cost of clearing your backlog. We offer a granular approach to managing productivity, providing you with visibility and reassurance on levels of quality and performance in-house or off-site.

Training, on demand.

We upskill and train your team to ensure that they always provide your department with the highest level of service. By nurturing and managing the professional development of your team, we can make sure that their progress is never neglected. 

  

We’re helping local authorities up and down the country deliver more.

Let’s see how we can support your team.
