Midlands Companies Combine Skills and Expertise to Benefit Clients Across the Board

Two Midlands companies have joined forces to ensure their clients have access to all of the services they need at their fingertips.  Face2Face Solicitors and The Planning Group Ltd will combine the skills of their qualified and experienced staff and work together for current and future clients.

Face2Face, a Shrewsbury based solicitors practice with offices across the UK, delivers high quality legal services for domestic and business clients whilst The Planning Group Ltd, based in Cross Houses, Shrewsbury, is a planning practice that covers the full spectrum of planning from initial applications, appeals, heritage and landscape appraisals to complaint handling and costs applications.  The Planning Group employs associates across the country in order to offer a nationwide service.

Robin Hooper, Director at Face2Face said, “Having worked with clients nationally on developments it is clear that there is a common need expressed by clients which is often not pursued.  That need is getting legal advice in relation to their development proposals at the same time as getting planning advice to ensure the proposals do not have constraints that cannot be overcome.  The team at The Planning Group and Face2Face Solicitors have the unique advantage of incorporating both senior level planning and legal experience in the public and private sectors, and understand the wider picture that needs to be considered when pursuing development proposals to give the best possible chance of success and maximise the profits from the development.”

Martin Parrish, Managing Director of The Planning Group said, “The two companies working together in collaboration will benefit all of their clients”.

Martin also added that initial advice on planning matters was free of charge and that it was extremely important that clients sought advice before embarking on a project in order to prevent any problems further down the line.

“This is an excellent opportunity to provide homeowners, landowners and businesses of all sizes access to a wide range of services, allowing them to progress with their project or development with confidence,” he added.  “All of our planners are former principal planning officers and our expertise in local Government practices and all aspects of the planning process mean we can help whatever the problem or need.”

The Planning Group Ltd work nationally and are currently engaged by clients of all sizes, ranging from householders to large commercial companies, projects include extensions, new builds, renewable energy schemes and the promotion of strategic land holdings for development.

Councils are moving forward with identifying possible future development sites and there has never been a better time to check where development has been proposed as it may affect your property and you may wish to object or alternatively, you may be able to benefit by seeking an allocation of your own land for a development in order to increase your land values.  The Planning Group is well placed to help on both issues.

The Company represents clients at Public Inquiries, Hearings and all Planning Appeal procedures including Enforcement and Lawful Use.
