My Basic Philosophy as a Planning Consultant 

My philosophy is very simple. I will ask myself 2 questions. Firstly , do I think planning permission should be granted? - if my considered answer is no, I will inform the client of that. If the answer is yes I will then ask myself `Is the LPA likely to approve it or will we probably have to go to appeal?` I will inform the client of that too.

My Basic Philosphy as a Training Consultant 

You are never to late to learn new things and if you are not willing to learn and develop as a professional (or as an organisation) then you do your customers no favours whatsoever, and in turn do yourself no favours either.

Why use a planning consultant? Why not just get someone to draw the plans?

The short answer is to understand what the planning policies and parameters you have to work with(in) and avoid spending money on expensive plans that have no realistic chance of getting approval. A good architect or plan drawer will know their limitations and have access to a good planner, and in reverse a good planner will not try and draw you poor plans.
