Kathryn is always very response, proactive and capable, using her well-established connections to deliver the positive result we have for DEPOT 3. Kathryn is our go-to planning consultant, always giving us the most accurate advice and prioritising us to meet tight deadlines.”

Nicholas Saunders, Managing Director, DEPOT

“KEW Planning showed excellent leadership and management through the whole planning process.  As an awkward site, KEW’s involvement was paramount and added substantial value to the project.  This was the first time working with Kathryn and her team and we would have no hesitation in working with KEW again in the future.”

Andrew Garner, Pre-Construction Director, Wynne Construction

This was the first time working with KEW Planning, which came via a recommendation. I have been absolutely thrilled and by the regular communication keeping me up to date on the status of the applications, the professional and technically capable skills that Kathryn in particular demonstrated, and I would have no hesitation in working with KEW Planning again.

St David's College engaged KEW Planning as Planning Consultants for our £6m New Teaching Block development. KEW Planning dealt very effectively and efficiently  with the pre-planning consultation process with planning consent and a Unilateral Undertaking being obtained in August 2022. We are grateful for the advice and support provided by KEW Planning throughout this process.
