Planning

 

Planning for success

When it comes to planning, we prefer to be proactive. Which is why our clients trust us to support them on planning matters, large or small. And it’s not just the size of the project that we’re flexible on; we tailor our input to suit your requirements. Whether you need full-scale project management or bespoke, small-scale support, we can help you plan for success.  

 

Our approach may feel different. But that’s because planning doesn’t stand still. So we are constantly asking if there is a better way.

 

"Extremely professional approach. Jamie's knowledge on the planning system is second to none! We were so impressed that we have decided to use nineteen47 on every scheme we take on."

Neil Stuart Homes

 

Objectives and Outcomes

We start with your objectives so that we can deliver the outcomes you need. We’ll be honest too. We’ll flag risks and potential problems as early as possible so you can avoid late arising issues. Finally, we’ll keep you informed throughout. In fact, if needed, we’ll be in touch so much, you’ll know us better than your colleagues!

 

As you might expect, we don’t just prepare and submit planning applications, we offer the full works:

  • Initial feasibility work and pre-application advice
  • Preparation and submission of planning appeals (including expert witness evidence at enquiries)
  • Environmental Impact Assessments
  • Public Consultation / Community Engagement
  • Certificate of Lawfulness
  • Long term strategic advice and land promotion
  • Section 106 / Community Infrastructure Levy Negotiation

 

And if you need additional technical consultants for your projects, we can recommend exceptional architects, highways consultants, ecologists, surveyors and many more.

Jamie Pyper

Jamie Pyper

Director

Meet Jamie. Planning consultant and fellow co-founder, Jamie started his career in Local Government and has spent the past 16 years working in private consultancy. Happiest when trying to unpick a problem and find solutions, Jamie loves navigating planning obstacles for a diverse range of clients from large PLCs and establishments to SMEs and individuals.

One of Jamie’s favourite projects was achieving planning permission for a new animal care and equine college campus in the Midlands. He got to meet (well, stand relatively close to) Princess Anne at the opening ceremony (they’ve not kept in touch).

When Jamie isn’t scaling mountains of planning paperwork, he enjoys hill walking, and has been climbing the Scottish Munros for a number of years. He’s done 50 so far, so only 232 to go (not that we’re counting).

Carl Stott

Director

Meet Carl. An experienced Planner and environmental expert, Carl relishes a complicated and multi-disciplined planning challenge.  With an eye for detail and extensive experience in planning and environmental consultancy, as well as a background in Local Government, Carl likes nothing better than getting his teeth into the EIA process.

Carl has worked on several football stadiums and training facilities, including Chelsea FC and Everton FC. But his favourite was Rotherham United’s New York Stadium, where he co-ordinated Environmental Statements for the groundworks, to raise the riverside site out of a flood zone and for the stadium itself.

When he’s not planning new residential, commercial and leisure developments, Carl can be found trying to improve his 5km times on the Parkrun circuit or watching Peterborough Utd on a cold ‘away’ terrace with a cup of hot Bovril.

Clare Plant

Director

Clare Plant

Director

Meet Clare. New to nineteen47, Clare is an experienced planner and qualified development surveyor. Passionate about planning and its influence on the environment, Clare is always considering what makes a commercially sound planning scheme.

Taking a holistic approach, Clare loves seeing a project unfold. On a favourite project of hers in Norfolk, she brought together a golf course owner and a regional house-builder to deliver a mutually beneficial residential development opportunity. Clare managed the project from start to finish and was delighted to get a sneak peak of the shiny new show home on a subsequent holiday in the area.  

As part-owner of a Midlands micro-brewery, when she’s not planning developments for clients, Clare is planning her next craft ale (which our clients tell us is rather tasty!)
