positive people, planning properly

Maria Bailey Planning Ltd is an independent planning development consultancy providing specialist advice on all aspects of the planning process, including an in-house design and plan drawing service.

The planning system is ever-changing and becoming more and more complex, meaning that even straightforward schemes require significant professional input from a wide range of development consultants. Our town planners have extensive professional experience in both private and public sectors, especially in the South West of England.

The Practice has a well-developed client base with a reputation for professionalism and excellent contacts, and maintains close and constructive working relationships with local authorities and public/private sector professionals. We also attend training and information events to ensure we retain our understanding of an evolving environment and that the best interests of our clients are represented.

  • After meeting negative attitudes with my local planning department, I called in Maria Bailey Planning. Their knowledge of the planning system helped develop my proposals and guide my project to a successful conclusion. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.
