Working with a range of landowners including developers, businesses, farmers, self-builders, speculators, charities, trusts and homeowners, we specialise in obtaining planning approval for bespoke homes and speculative residential housing developments.

For each our focus is securing planning permission.

You’ll be inspired by our ceaseless ambition to explore and optimise land assets while balancing the financial, functional, practical and technical aspects of each project.

Understanding, interpreting and formulating a strategic solution that responds to your sites’s unique circumstances is our vital starting point and is the magic thread that runs through all projects.

Outstanding Service


We feel that the service we received from you was outstanding. Very professional and structured. You came up with practical, cost effective solutions. Communication was always quick and responsive.

I & L Northcroft, Client

Handled Efficiently and Professionally


We would not hesitate to recommend you to other prospective clients or to use you again. It was always easy to contact you and there were never any long delays. Everything was handled efficiently and professionally – plus the experience you have in dealing with the planning authorities ensured that the drawings not only match our original brief but also fulfil all the necessary regulations.

G Hunt, Client

Took The Time To Understand Our Brief


We would recommend their services. They took the time to understand our brief, encouraged us to think about our design, and added real value in offering excellent complimentary ideas for our house. Their knowledge of local council planning was invaluable in getting planning permission.

M Krupa, Client

Good lateral thinking of all aspects


We would strongly recommend Hunters and would use them for future projects as and when they arise without any hesitation. They are very passionate about any project. Good lateral thinking of all aspects of our project.

M Kumar, Client

Would Recommend Without Hesitation


We were very happy with Hunters’ Services; trouble free and great communications at all times. Very easy to deal with and would recommend without any hesitation. We tried several other companies but none convinced us we would get an approval for our project. We noted Hunters on a Public Notice displayed at a site near to us and made contact with them, thank goodness we did.

M Jones, Client

Nothing To Be Improved Upon


A very professional, efficient not to say friendly service from start to finish. We would not hesitate to recommend Hunters to anyone. Nothing to be improved upon – service was excellent and friendly throughout, from initial consultation to planning permission approval.

K Kenny, Client

Fantastic To Work With


I found Hunters fantastic to work with, this was our first ever project and they assisted us in visioning what we would want in our home. When I spoke to Hunters I just knew they were right.

Our approach

We have no fixed design style, preferring to listen, interpret and then realise land potential to create inspiring and robust homes that stand the test of time.

Expert in-house team

Each project benefits from a specialist in-house team comprising architects, planning consultants, land professionals, sustainability and conservation specialists. A dedicated team leader will be assigned to your project and will guide you through the planning process and be your point of contact throughout the project.

Supported by multi-disciplinary specialists

Specialist supporting information is often vital to help justify and support a planning application, particularly where the policy context is unfavourable. We have a wide range of experts within our network that we can call upon to enable a high-quality, robust and co-ordinated residential planning submission.

Context is everything

What surrounds the site? How will the space by used? How much is the likely end value of the completed homes? Are there planning restrictions? Geographical compromises? Context drives and defines any project. We seek to balance these elements. Be assured, your context is always at the centre of our process.

Up-to date with current planning changes and policies

We aim to keep ahead and at the forefront of the ever-changing policy, advice, statutes, precedents, case law and government advice and guidance to ensure that we have the appropriate and relevant in-depth knowledge of the planning system to ensure the best result for our clients.
