AMS Testimonials

Overall Customer Satisfaction


"Cannot recommend enough"

Planning permission had been refused previously on a site we were looking at and I was recommended to speak with Steve at AMS Planning.

I was immediately impressed by his positive attitude and grasp of the planning issues. Over the course of the next few months AMS Planning guided the planning application for five large houses through the planning system.

Ultimately, we received planning permission where others had failed. I cannot recommend AMS Planning highly enough. We now use the team at AMS for a range of other work including GIS which is a new area for us. That will generate new development projects and we will continue to use both the planning and architectural side of the practice.

"Consistently high quality"

Steve has been the planning consultant we have consistently used for many years. He is a planning expert and a sensible, reasonable professional who finds creative ways to address problems and has consistently delivered successful planning applications again and again for me.

My first interaction with Steve was on a site for 250 houses and 10,000 square metres of commercial floorspace over 10 years ago. His company produced the planning case and designed the master planning for that site.

The success there led me to work with him on several further occasions and he is now preparing a further application on a site for 350 home and a hotel.

The work produced by the team at AMS Planning has always been consistently of the highest quality and, most importantly, we have always been successful.

"Impressed with their expertise"

As one of the larger property companies in the Northern region we choose the companies we work with carefully.

The team at AMS Planning have been one of those companies for a few years now and I have always been impressed with their expertise and commercial understanding of the planning system.

We used the team at AMS Planning on a project south of Yarm in the Tees Valley for 145 homes. A combination of local knowledge and planning expertise from Steve and his associate Ross led us to a successful outcome in the face of quite significant opposition.

"Helpful, positive and knowledgeable"

We first approached Steve following a recommendation from a friend who had used him elsewhere. At that time, we had spoken with a planning consultant and after a pre-application enquiry we had been told there was no chance of getting planning permission for the singe house we wanted to build.

Steve visited us and we were immediately impressed with his experience and expertise. He has a helpful, positive manner and he explained to us a particular strategy he would follow that had not been identified by the previous planning consultant.

We are so pleased we put our trust in Steve. His team produced an excellent planning application and within three months we were walking out of the planning committee with the approval that has changed our lives.

We simply cannot thank Steve and the team at AMS Planning enough for their work.

"Excellent commercially astute advice"

My family has consistently used the team at AMS Planning for many years. They have never failed us and always given excellent commercially astute advice. It was therefore an easy decision when we were looking around for both planning and architectural assistance when my wife and I wanted to build our own home.

The planning process is never straightforward and applying for planning permission for your family's own home can be stressful. The team at AMS Planning were always helpful and on hand to steer us in the right direction. Ultimately, despite a vociferous group of objectors our planning application was successful and we start the build in the Spring of 2022.

"Would highly recommend"

Steve and his team worked with us on a major planning for a new holiday park. His in-depth knowledge of planning significantly helped us through what at times was a bewildering process. He gave honest, reliable advice and his credibility in this field was clear. We would highly recommend their team and would work with them again without question.
