"We have used several planning practices over the years and been involved in a wide range of projects. What impressed us about the Intelligent Land team was their approach; they didn’t tell us what we wanted to hear but they told us exactly what we needed to hear. This has resulted in a significant cost saving for our business combined with a low risk approach and a significantly higher chance of success. They provide planning and commercial advice which we highly recommend.”

My company engaged Intelligent Land as Planning Consultants for a development opportunity in the Heritage & Conservation area of “Old Town Poole”
I am genuinely delighted at the service Nigel Jacobs and his team have provided, making light work of a potentially difficult planning submission.
Nigel’s intelligent and thoughtful approach with all stakeholders, I believe, affords my company the best chance of a successful planning solution.

Housing Land availability is the starting position for examining all housing applications .The science of land supply can no longer be left to a generalist approach. Landowners and developers know this is a crucial step towards a successful application. The NPPF has to be interpreted by experts in this field and none come better than Intelligent Land who have a proven track record
Mark's evidence drew on a deep understanding of the dynamics of the house building industry. He was able to provide telling insights to the proposed supply forecast by the local planning authority.

I wish I had met Mark 10 years ago. I have all the building skills you could wish for but Mark has an undoubted talent and improving the value of planning permissions. I kick myself at the schemes I have developed and how much more profits we would undoubtedly have made. I would urge anyone considering developing a site to consult with him.
Mark always starts from the basics and with great determination finds practical means of adding value to even the most complex projects……his talent for spotting an angle combined with a natural gift for communication, enables him to exploit opportunities and extract maximum value ……substantially improved the value of one of the UK’s leading developer schemes.

I consult with Mark on any residential development matters and have introduced him to several close friends. He has an undoubted talent for creating value where others cannot see it. We have worked on several projects together including 13 storey towers, mixed use projects, waters edge schemes. He is extremely pleasant to do business with. He is one of the good guys.

Mark is an exceptional talent. He has a skill in development that is extremely rare. I consult with him on all projects and have worked on a joint venture with him. He is a thoroughly decent chap and adds significant profits to development schemes. If you have the opportunity to have him on your side, take it. He will more than repay his cost.
