Team Building

McLoughlin Planning is a team of independent planning consultants. This means that we specialise in town planning, we know planning consultancy inside and out because it’s all we do. As we are not part of a surveying or architecture business, you are free to use whomever you would like to carry out those specialisms on your project.

Over the years we have worked with many architects, surveyors, land agents, solicitors and estate agents and have developed strong working relationships with them. If you are stuck for ideas on whom to use on your team, we are very experienced in bringing together a dedicated team, whose skills are appropriate for your project.

We are an adaptable, friendly bunch of people who enjoy working with lots of different professionals, the focus is always on getting the best result for our clients.
