Town Planning Testimonial For Rob Duncan

Date: October 19, 2023

Chris Green,

We began looking at ideas for Wildwood in 2017, and it was not until 2019 that we decided that a new build/replacement dwelling in a contemporary style was the way forward for us.

In late 2020, we engaged Hewitt & Carr to be our architects - they were an established local business, and had a highly recommended Planning Consultant - Rob Duncan - as part of their team. 

We always envisaged that obtaining Planning Permission for our site could be tricky, so we knew we needed a good partner on that side - Rob had previously worked for the SMDC Planning Department, so his knowledge and insight was to be invaluable.

 From the outset, our meetings with Rob were very positive - he listened, and understood what we wanted to do; he recommended a strategy going forward, and was open, honest and realistic about the potential pitfalls, as well as the potential timescale.

 Rob had warned us that it could take 18 - 24 months to achieve planning approval - and he was right - it was actually 20 months.

 Throughout the process, Rob was always available to us with helpful advice, tips and guidance; on occasions he liaised directly with SMDC to help move things forward. Robs' approach is very friendly and realistic - you know that he is speaking honestly from first-hand experience, and always tells you the reality of the situation, good or bad.

 We have nothing but praise for Rob Duncan, as his role was absolutely key in our being granted full planning permission for what we wanted for our project. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone thinking of embarking on a project where planning permission will be required.
