Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd

Gary has a great team of specialists at HOW – professional, dedicated and committed to delivering the best results for their clients. We have appointed HOW on a range of our large strategic projects as lead planning and environmental advisors; this has helped achieve a significant number of residential allocations and planning approvals for Taylor Wimpey.

The contribution of the HOW team to complex planning issues is always precise, clear and carried out with a high level of professionalism. They are well respected by the planning authorities and provide practical solutions to the numerous hurdles to be crossed before a development can commence.

Peter Skelton


HOW was instrumental in securing planning for our development at Chester. Marrying the commercial requirements of Waitrose with a challenging planning brief, through discussion and a collaborative approach, both parties, Cheshire West & Chester Council and Waitrose, have achieved a fantastic result. Testimony to HOW’s true worth.

Malcolm Edge, Development Manager

Grasscroft Property

We have worked and continue to work with HOW Planning on many residential and mixed use schemes. Their knowledge, professionalism and approach to dealing with all matters relating to the planning system is second-to-none.

Mike Coulter, Director


I must say how impressed we have been with the professional manner in which HOW have assisted us over the past few years.
