Why Us

Why choose RBA Town Planning to represent you and guide your development proposal through the minefield of Planning Policies that control development?

Councils describe themselves as “Planning Services” which provides the impression that the planning function of the Council is a “Service”, unfortunately this is generally not the case; with one client describing the Planning Service as a “Planning Dictatorship”. This analogy rang true with the RBA Team, having been on the “inside” we could relate to how the client felt. RBA do provide a service; we work solely in your interests and provide sound advice and guidance on how best to obtain the permission you want and not what the Council want you to have. We use our years of experience and negotiation skills to engage with Planning Officers on a planning level, in short, Planning Officers can’t bluff us with planning speak and terminology.

Testimonial - House Extension

We wanted to extend our home double storey at the side and front. Our Architect drew the plans but the Planners wanted it reducing quite a lot so the space didn’t give us what we wanted. We involved RBA who advised the Architect to make some minor changes, RBA submitted an appeal for us and turned the no into a yes.

Mr & Mrs Mangham

Testimonial - House Extension

We applied for permission to move our parents into a static caravan in the garden of our house so they were close but still had independence. The Council were very negative and wanted to refuse the application because we live in Green Belt. RBA were able to get the application approved, we can’t thank them enough.
