INFLUENCE PLANNING
A PLANNING CONSULTANCY BASED IN CORNWALL

Testimonials

“The best advice I took from Paul was to let him handle the whole of the negotiations, from start to finish, and he did.  He kept us well informed of every step from the preliminary discussions with the Planning Authority, joining and representing us with a presentation to the Local Parish Council, and all subsequent delicate negotiations with the Planning Case Officer and his Team Leader. 
“This has been a fantastic success and I will be asking Paul to work alongside my team in order to deliver this exciting project on time, on budget and to the Council’s satisfaction.  I cannot thank him enough for the work he has done on our behalf, and would have no hesitation to recommend Influence Planning to anyone looking to gain planning approval.”

“Influence Planning advised our community group in connection with a High Court challenge.  Our group, 2Big2Close was an Interested Party at the hearing, which was between a wind farm developer and the Planning Inspectorate. The developer’s claim was dismissed.  The Judge was so impressed with our arguments, formulated by Paul Bateman of Influence Planning, that he took the highly unusual step of awarding us, as an interested party, our legal costs. We are most grateful to Paul for his wise advice and shrewd judgment”.
Martin Pearse, Partner, Follett Stock Solicitors LLP, Chairman of 2Big2Close Community Group

“Calling Paul was the best thing we have done. After having had some previously poor advice we contacted Paul as his knowledge of the planning system is second to none; Influence Planning had an enforcement notice overturned and we had our planning permission granted.  Without his help we would be living elsewhere.  Many thanks again.”
Mr and Mrs Harper owners of the retained Fern Hill Chalet.

"Paul’s approach to our planning issue was candid and comprehensive. His written report was outstanding. What impressed us was his ability to cut through rhetoric and deliver a reasoned argument which was both accessible and articulate. We would not hesitate in recommending Influence Planning."
