Quality advice in every aspect of town and country planning
If you want to apply for planning permission, appeal a refusal, promote your site for development, produce a neighbourhood plan or object to a proposed development, Vision Planning can help.

We provide independent planning advice to developers, landowners and householders, parish councils and community groups across England.

PLANNING APPLICATIONS & APPEALS
BRINGING PLANS TO LIFE
Whether it’s a major new community including homes, schools and shops, or a building in your garden, gaining planning permission can be a complex and lengthy undertaking. We will help guide you through the process and give your application or appeal the best chance of success.
DEVELOPMENT SITE PROMOTION
PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
Our in-depth understanding of the development plan process and land supply requirements enables us to make the best possible case for your site’s allocation.
NEIGHBOURHOOD PLANS
HELP SHAPE YOUR COMMUNITY
How should a community grow? Where could new developments be built? What infrastructure would be needed? By creating neighbourhood plans, local groups can directly influence the way their community changes. We provide the guidance and support required to do just that.
OBJECTIONS
GET YOUR VOICE HEARD
Are you concerned about a proposed extension next door or a new housing development in fields nearby? We will help to get the best outcome for you – whether that means changing the plans, or objecting to the principle of the development.

Stuart has been a great help in stepping through the minefield of planning law, we have had excellent support from his knowledge and his expertise is second to none. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve the timescales without him.

Vision Planning testimonial Rebecca Wilson
I’ve worked with many planning consultants over the years as an agricultural and equine expert and I often tell my clients that a successful planning application is much more likely if they have the right team in place. I can honestly say that there are only four consultants across the country that I could wholeheartedly recommend as people who are not only excellent in their line of business, but are also helpful and a pleasure to work with. Stuart Miles is definitely one of them.

Stuart has been very helpful dealing with what I initially thought would be a simple process but has resulted in three applications and two appeals. His knowledge of the planning system has helped guide me through this minefield!

Stuart was instructed to deal with a breach of condition that was being enforced by Wiltshire council. He worked with us and kept us informed throughout the whole process of the planning and was professional throughout. Stuart was quick to deal with this and come up with a solution to give an outcome that we wanted. I would highly recommend Stuart or his team.

We required timely expert advice on a planning matter and found Vision Planning responsive and we appreciated the excellent support and guidance we received. Stuart listened intently to our query, asked searching questions and then responded to meet our pressing deadline with first rate advice and guidance. Stuart was recommended to us through an existing client of Vision Planning who spoke highly of the service, we were not disappointed and our expectations were more than met. A first rate service – thank you.
