Testimonials

“We have worked with Anthony Ferguson across 5 different projects now and he has secured outstanding results on all of them. He is extremely thorough, proactive, commercial, reliable, very likable and excellent at what he does. We wouldn’t use anybody else.”

Luke Daynes, Field Day Developments

“Very well played.  You have led us skilfully and expertly through a maze which is UK planning.  We have been fortunate to have you as our planning consultant and my view is we would not have this consent if it was not for your professional approach delivered with dogged determination coupled with thoughtful insight and advice.  You will have more work on this project.   The ball is now with the project team to build out the scheme, lease the downstairs and produce a first class building”.

David Mayes, Fletcher King

“Loraine has handled  a number of applications on our behalf involving change of use and alterations which have all resulted in a successful outcome. I am always impressed with Loraine’s attention to detail and her great communication skills with both us and the Planning Authority”.

“Obtaining planning consent isn’t easy. It requires extensive planning knowledge, not to mention leadership, tenacity, organisation, diplomacy, patience and that’s just for starters. We’ve worked very closely with Mark Eagland at Peacock and Smith over the last two years to secure a planning consent that was first mooted over 35 years ago. Not only has Mark and his team demonstrated all of the above qualities but their skill in working and directing the members of the planning team to address the issues of all the stakeholders has resulted in a closely fought, but successful outcome. Throughout this process Peacock and Smith have always maintained an excellent professional working relationship with the local authority planning department, critical for our application and for those they deal with in the future”

Chris Pratt, Managing Director, Gaunts Ltd Commercial Properties

“Gareth assisted us with a project to extend a large licensed premises in the Green Belt, we expected issues with the application having initially spoken to the Planners.  We therefore appointed Gareth to act as agent and put together the application documents.  The application was approved in a timely manner, which delighted the client.

Gareth is always out first point of call when we have a question regarding Planning, Listed Building, Conservation Area, Policy, etc, as he is professional, practical, knowledgeable and has a great understanding of the needs of the other professionals in the design team”

Lee Hollinworth, Partner, Whittaker Design

“2014 was the first time we have used Peacock & Smith and certainly won’t be the last.  We couldn’t have wished for a more efficient and proactive Planning Practice to be genuinely interested to help us and secure us a planning consent for a Morrisons Local in Sheffield.  Peacock & Smith will be highly recommended to others by us.”
