HOW was formed in 2001 by Gary Halman and Richard Woodford. The practice has grown in size and reputation to become one of the leading private planning practices in the north of England.
Based in Manchester and operating nationally our clients expect commercially focussed advice and innovative strategies. We have a detailed understanding not just of policy, practice and the legislative framework for planning but also the politics and other key factors that influence planning decisions.
Our ethos is to provide a personal, Partner led service. We are highly results driven and secure over 95% success rate across all the planning applications we submit.
