  • Richard and Rachel provided excellent advice and steered us through a potentially difficult planning application as we are based in a World Heritage Site with a number of constraints. Rachel produced a very comprehensive application for us and helped us secure a successful outcome. They have many excellent contacts and we would have no hesitation in recommending or using RCC Town Planning Consultancy in the future.

  • Richard and the team at RCC Town Planning were recommended to us for their expertise in navigating the planning procedure, and what could have been a complicated and frustrating process was made far simpler and quicker by employing their talents. They were friendly and professional throughout, and highlighted and dealt with any potential issues that arose with excellent communications and a knack for explaining perplexing issues in layman’s terms.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any planning issues.

  • On behalf of the Self family, we would like to sincerely thank Richard and the RCC Town Planning team for their hard work and dedication in achieving being granted full permission by the Wiltshire strategic planning committee for the reordering and extension to our family run Whitehall Garden Centre at Lacock (

    Our application was always going to be complicated with many historic, difficult and sensitive issues and being in a sensitive rural area, Richard carefully and expertly put together the planning application for which we received very little objection and a huge amount of support after our community and customer consultation events.

    Following our initial Pre App meeting with the Local Planning officer, Richard coordinated the team of outsourced consultants required to report on the application and continued liaising with the Planning team and dealt with their enquiries promptly and kept the application flowing.

    We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of service we have received from Richard and his team and would fully recommend their services.

  • At Bushton Farm we had a challenging planning proposal and Kevin Haines of Haines construction recommended RCC Town Planning Consultancy. We followed this recommendation and found Richard to have a great deal of knowledge and a positive attitude throughout the application. Our landlord was surprised at our result and commented “you must have engaged a very good planning advisor”. Richard was able to answer questions promptly. Also involved in this case was Max Seally of White Avon Consultancy in an agricultural capacity.

  • We would highly recommend using RCC Town Planning Consultancy. We originally had a very contemporary design in a rural setting and RCC were realistic about our chances as we were met with local opposition. Having taken the advice of Richard and his team, after Richard had had extensive communications with the planning officer, we withdrew the application and re-designed the proposal. Richard and his team understood the elements of the design with which we did not want to compromise and with their help in liaising with our architect we came up with a new design following the points that the planning officer made and as a result we made a successful application.

    Without the input from RCC this would certainly not have been achieved and we are very thankful for all they did for us.

  • We would highly recommend using the expertise of RCC Town Planning Consultancy when applying for planning consent. We had a difficult experience initially when dealing with the planning department but Richard and his team were able to guide us through the process resulting in a positive outcome, we will be using them again, many thanks.

  • Having used Richard Cosker in a previous planning application which led to a successful decision notice, we had no hesitation in seeking his expert help and advice on achieving planning permission for a second agricultural dwelling that was proving to be difficult. 

    His expert knowledge and tenacity helped guide us through the negotiations putting us in a strong position when faced with the minefield of questions and problems received from the planning officers. 

    Thanks to Richard and his team we are pleased to say we have now received planning to go ahead with this building which without his help was becoming doubtful.  

  • The team at RCC gave clear and concise advice throughout the project. They were able to forward a very good scheme to the planning department complying with all relevant policies. Communication was very good for the entire length of proposals and discussions resulting in a good outcome.

  • Richard and his team have been very helpful in assisting us getting our agricultural workers dwelling planning application granted.  He was able to advise and highlight any possible issues before they might occur during the application process.  He kept us informed at all stages.  Once again many thanks RCC Town Planning for all your hard work.

  • We have received excellent service from RCC Town Planning Consultancy, who recently worked with us on a planning application for a two storey extension.

    Richard Cosker provided advice on realistic options and used his expertise to suggest a design solution which we had not previously considered. We are very pleased to have been granted the full permission. We would definitely use RCC again and would recommend them to friends and family.
