A little bit about what we do

We deliver major planning permissions and strategies for creative organisations and individuals, galleries and museums, performing arts, education, trusts, charities, artists, historic estates, central Government and ecclesiastical buildings. We also provide planning advice on heritage properties, transcending all commercial sectors.

We can assist with the planning process from the initial idea, to negotiations with the Council and relevant parties, through to securing permission and starting the development on site. 


The Planning Lab has worked extensively in London. We are familiar with the policies and have good relationships with senior Planning Officers at many central London Boroughs, Historic England and the GLA, as well as wider cultural links across the UK. We have worked with many world class architects and specialist teams.


We are aware of the public pressures and responsibilities facing many of our clients. We can help navigate these, alongside the delivery of clear, concise and honest planning advice.
