NJL provided first class planning advice from start to finish on our site at King’s Road in Audenshaw. Not only did their expertise assist in terms of the site acquisition by maximising the developable area of the site which benefitted the land owner, but they also helped deliver a full planning permission for us in 9 weeks with Section 106 signed, which is almost unheard of these days.

As well as managing the planners, the way in which they got involved with the wider consultant team and proactively looked for workable solutions to problems as they arose was most welcome.
