"CMK Planning Played a very crucial role in the success of our appeal. We were lucky to have Colm who worked on the statement but also his direct involvements with all aspects of the appeal process."

Razi Torbati

"Excellent service, got exactly what I needed. CMK Planning are professional and quick to respond with honest advice. Couldn’t ask for more and highly recommend them! Thanks again!"

Kat Michme

"CMK and specifically Colm have been amazing throughout the whole process. We received planning consent for our project the first time round - and that is entirely down to CMK. The planning report they produced was faultless. Thorough, informative, rigorous, detailed, leaving no stone unturned and striking the perfect note. I would certainly recommend and will be using for all my future projects."

James Hyde

"I was very impressed with Colm in getting our planning appeal approved after initially being refused from Brighton Council. We didn't give up and Colm put together a very comprehensive appeal statement and he was relentless in his pursuit of getting the appeal overturned. He even managed to get us a rebate on our planning fees from Brighton Council ! I have already recommend Colm to some friends and I will definitely be using CMK planning again in the future."
