How we work?
As the owners of Progress, Pippa Gardner and Chris Gardner provide a personal and direct service centred on the client’s aims and objectives and working in partnership to develop strategies that work, at both a cost and timescale appropriate to the client and the project.
Working together with other experienced experts Progress Planning Consultancy is able to provide a full consultancy service managing projects of all sizes, without compromising the level of service provided, or deferring advice to more junior professionals.
Our team prides themselves in their ability to establish strong relationships with clients, council officers and other consultants. In doing so they are able to navigate through the planning and development process in a manner which is refreshing, open and realistic, and which delivers results without unnecessary delay or conflict.
Progress has built up an impressive list of preferred specialists in key sectors such as Traffic and Transport, Environmental Assessment, Archaeology, Heritage etc. We will communicate with you as often or as little as you wish.
Progress is set up to provide a fully electronic service but is equally able to provide ‘old style’ written advice and paperwork if that is your preference. An open and honest policy is adopted where both Client and consultant are encouraged to air their views openly, and where advice is presented as clearly and directly as possible – the removal of ‘industry talk’ and the provision of straight forward advice is central to the Progress approach.
The planning system is often complex and unclear, our experience and approach enables us to ‘cut to the chase’ and provide a clear explanation of what is required and how to achieve it.
