We were really impressed with Glenn

"We wanted to extend our grade II* listed property and saw a number of specialist planning consultants. The planning application was not straightforward for a number of reasons and we wanted an expert in this area with the credibility to engage and negotiate effectively with the local authority, and take us through the process step by step. We chose Glenn because of his enormous experience in delivering non-standard projects for clients; his confidence in dealing with all the different parties involved in the process; and his general affable manner. We were really impressed with Glenn on all three fronts. He has a strong presence in this market and is well respected by his peers. He sits on the relevant committees and understands the process in minute detail. This meant he had a lot of credibility when it came to engaging with the relevant parties including the local authority, building regs and Historic England. His written submissions were excellent and his advice on design and materials was spot on. He managed to achieve a great result for us which exceeded our expectations for the project. We were absolutely delighted with his work and would recommend him without reservation."

You will be in the most capable hands

"I first contacted Glen after we had bought a older unlisted property with planning permission, that did not reflect its real character at all. It was the best decision we made, as for the past six years Glen has ensured that all aspects of our renovation has processed smoothly in the different stages we are slowly funding - to ensure that the home we are creating is both right for us and the building itself, as ecologically as possible. He is a fountain of knowledge with attention to detail and knows far more than most of the planning officials we have had to deal with, always ready to answer even the smallest question. We highly recommend him for any type of project, big or small, as you will be in the most capable hands - while he has some wonderful ideas too!"

Hugely instrumental in our project

"Glenn is a great guy and has been hugely instrumental in our project. He always does what he says and is fantastic in dealing with the council, standing up for what he truly believes in. I have no hesitation in recommending Glenn and would happily undertake another project under his guidance should the opportunity ever arise."

Effective preparation and submission of objection to the planning permission

"I am extremely pleased to say that your effective preparation and submission of objection to the planning permission to Sevenoaks District Council has been very sucessful. My neighbour has now amended his plans and changed the location of of his proposed riding area. I have enclosed copies of letters from Sevenoaks District Council and my neighbours' agent Mr Peter Mellor, for your information. I thank you very much for your help in this matter"

Kevin Ellis

Great news, planning agreed!

"I have known Glenn for a long time. He has done a lot of work for me over the years on various jobs, including retrospective planning permission and getting tricky projects passed. He always delivers. I highly recommend him. Be in touch soon with the next project Oz!"

Just to let you know your design was fabulous

"Just to let you know your design was fabulous. The clients are very pleased and I was really impressed with how the design has completely retained the character of the original outbuilding whilst creating a surprisingly large space inside."

Glenn Moore delivered where everyone else had failed

"I had just about given up hope on converting the old farmyard I owned into my dream home, local planning consultants had failed to get the approvals I needed and I was told not to bother trying again. I was introduced to G.M. Moore via a friend who said: “Glenn doesn’t believe in not trying.” He redrew a plan utilising every piece of planning law and immediately we started to get traction. Unlike most planning consultants, Glenn is not afraid to push your project. He works for you and believes every project should be fought as hard as possible. He is able to do this because he understands planning laws and guidelines. He has a good feel for both what will work with the local authority and how to achieve your aims. It took us a further 18 months and Glenn never once stopped pushing, at the end we had planning permission for a fantastic home the building of which was shown on the TV show “My dream derelict home.” The home was well designed maximising space and giving us the dream home we knew the barns could be. I could not recommend Glenn highly enough. If you have any questions please do feel free to call me on 07979755118 or email me on mattmarples@hotmail.co.uk."

Highly recommended to both family and friends

"Glenn Moore had been the architect on our home some years previously prior to our purchase, so we contacted him about the latest planning permission already granted on the property. From the outset he was always helpful and a pleasure to work with, full of useful information and experience particularly with our rather unusual property - so he enabled us to adapt the existing permission to suit our own style, sorting out all the paperwork and meetings with the local Council in a very smooth and timely fashion. We managed most of the existing project ourselves due to a limited budget, but unlike some architects Glenn was very supportive and was always on hand to help answer questions. We are already planning the next (much larger stage) of renovations and look forward to working with him again, while in the meantime we have highly recommended him to both family and friends."

"Glenn is a great, if sometimes unconventional guy to work with whom I met nearly two years ago following a personal recommendation. He is currently overseeing the construction of our new home for which he managed to get us planning permission a year ago, and now it is full steam ahead on a very exciting project thanks to him. He remains unswervingly committed and is wonderful on a communications front, answering every phone call and email without fail. If you're looking for planning permission for the unusual, Glenn's your man!"

Thank you, Claudia. High Weald AONB Hailsham, East Sussex Heathfield, East Sussex Uckfield

Specialist Services

We work mainly in the South East of England – Sussex, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey and London. Further travel by negotiation.

We also prepare and submit building regulation applications to ensure your project complies with the latest standards. Structural engineering and Technical services are also provided.

We offer specialist services on a consultancy basis. We can work with your building contractor (we can recommend contractors in the South East of England) to ensure that all work is carried out to the specific requirements as detailed in your plans. We have extensive experience of working with diverse traditional materials and the techniques required to apply them.

As part of a listed building application, we can arrange an archaeological report that will date your property; provide material analysis and details of the history of the building. This is usually conducted as part of a listed property planning application, but is also an interesting insight that is unique to your property.
