We used LA for our initial design and planning application submission, both of which we were really pleased with. The architect completely understood where we were coming from re. Design and feel of the place and she was a delight to work with. Planning app was efficient, smooth, good communications and we got the green light straight away which was fab. Currently at 2nd fix (Jan 2020) but can share more photos once it's complete

Always great working with Chloe; she’s bright and very capable! She and the MD, Richard, have achieved numerous consents and approvals for us; often in opposition to case officers’ recommendations and other significant planning policy constraints. In our experience nothing is guaranteed where planning is concerned, but working with Chloe and Richard our odds of success are however guaranteed to be improved. To date we’ve not lost a single application and that doesn’t happen just by luck.
