Co Op
, Regional Planning Manager, The Co-operative Estates

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.

, Senior Land Manager, Taylor Wimpey

NJL understood our requirement from the outset, both in terms of the ultimate goal and the all-important timing element of the work. They were able to secure the required planning permission quickly and on schedule, whilst being pro-active at all times in their communication. I was very pleased with their work and will be using them again in the near future

Oak Furniture Land
, Property Director, JB Global

The Tarleton application had a number of challenges to overcome, but NJL displayed tenacity and dedication in ensuring that all the issues were resolved in a manner that ensured that permission was delivered and the development of the site remained financially viable. 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.

NJL has been exceptional from the initial brief through to planning consent, delivering a great outcome in a very quick timeframe.

Housing Units
, Managing Director, Housing Units

It is no exaggeration to say that NJL were absolutely central to the efficient execution of the planning process for the Surf Snowdonia project. This was a highly complex challenge, and I was both impressed and reassured by their sound advice, relationship building efforts and the very positive attitude they demonstrated to us the client. Their approach was imaginative, the staff assigned to us developed into a fully integrated element of our own management team, and the periodic interest and intervention of NJL's senior management reassured me that we were indeed viewed as valuable customers. They will be my planning consultants of choice for future projects.
