More recently, P4 Planning inherited and quickly got to grips with a complex planning brief relating to part of a World Heritage Site and devised and implemented a successful planning strategy that enabled us to deliver a new retail unit to the market.

Bill Davidson has been a valued planning advisor to Peel Holdings for many years and has helped secure consent for some of our key projects including Port Salford and Chatham Waters.  

These major regeneration schemes required a robust commercial approach and considerable tenacity.  They were undertaken in a very good spirit and Chatham Waters comprised the most positive and thorough planning application I have worked on.

P4 Planning worked with us from the outset on this project, providing input to the masterplan and coordinating other consultants to a tight programme.  The scheme involved extensive public consultation and pre-application discussion with local authority but the application was submitted on schedule.  During the whole process right through to the grant of consent we found P4 Planning to be pro-active, pragmatic and commercial in their approach and we would not hesitate to recommend them for similar work in the future.
