A New Era: Expanding our expertise to meet your needs

McLoughlin Planning is excited to announce the acquisition of Plainview Planning Ltd.

This significant merger unites 13 planning professionals and three support staff from both companies, enhancing our capabilities in providing ingenious, commercially-minded solutions to town planning challenges. With a shared culture rooted in trust and integrity, this collaboration will enrich the service offerings to our clients, providing a broader spectrum of expertise and augmenting personal development opportunities for our team members.

Nathan and Jenny McLoughlin will head the company. Jenny, supported by the very skilled Caroline Pitt and Elle Jones, will focus on finance, HR, client care, business development and marketing. Nathan leads a team of highly knowledgeable and skilled strategic planners: Russell Smith, Polly Mason, and Alex Eatough, all of whom have expertise in strategic land promotion and major mixed-use and residential developments and all who have proven track records of adding significant value to land through their strategic planning advice. Alex is a specialist in town centre regeneration, mixed-use developments, student housing, and residential developments in rural and urban settings. This team marks an exciting time for McLoughlin Planning and its strategic planning capabilities.

Chris Fleming, Catherine Hoyte, and Chris Moore will oversee the development management aspect of the business. They will lead a team of highly skilled, caring, and professional planners who provide outstanding planning advice for rural, urban, commercial, and residential needs. Catherine Hoyte is an expert in development control management strategy. Sam Eachus and Catherine are not only town planners but also chartered surveyors. Sam is a dedicated rural planning professional and a member of the British Institute of Agricultural Consultants, bringing great value to the private clients and estates Chris Fleming advises. We are excited to introduce this expanded team of highly effective development management services delivered by exceptionally knowledgeable individuals.

In recent years, McLoughlin Planning has established an office in London and achieved success with numerous planning applications due to Chris Moore’s extensive knowledge of planning issues in the London boroughs. The team’s capabilities were further enhanced when Polly Mason joined in January. This capability will continue to grow with the experience and knowledge of the Plainview team, especially the expertise of Marcia Perkins, who has local know-how, experience, and a strong history of successful planning applications in southeast England. This focused expansion into the southeast accompanies McLoughlin Plannings’ considerable experience with projects throughout central and southern England, especially in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, and Warwickshire.
