I worked with Foxes Rural relating to a planning application for our a new agricultural building and farm access.  Melanie came out to the farm to inspect in a swift manner and we achieve permission within a matter of weeks.  A very swift and efficient service where I was kept well informed during the planning process.  We also worked with Foxes Rural in respect of the change of use of agricultural buildings to commercial and they swiftly resolved issues with the planning officer which facilitated the move of the new tenant and achieved the approval within the agreed timeframe.

Melanie worked with us to prepare a Class R change of use of one of our pole barns to commercial.  This was a permitted development application and Melanie came up with an innovative way of approaching the application and the change of use.  We have now completed the building which is providing diversified income for our farming enterprise.
Jeremy French - A R French & Son Farmer
I instructed Foxes Rural to undertake planning for a new farm yard and grain store on our farm.  Guy came up with the solution of applying for both of these proposals using our permitted development rights rather than full planning.  Melanie handled the preparation and submission of our application and within a matter of weeks from issuing instructions I received approvals for both proposals.  The applications were comprehensively drafted and the company had an excellent understanding of how the planning process works on farms.
Robert Chamley - J W Chamley & Son Farmer
We instructed Guy and his team to prepare a planning application for the relocation of our business to the Tendring District.  We had outgrown our previous unit and wanted to relocate to a rural location which gives us space to expand.  The planning application for the commercial change of use for an agricultural building was submitted quickly and efficiently.  The application had a number of issues that arose following its submission based on concerns from the planning officer.  Guy co-ordinated these issues very quickly and found solutions on our behalf to overcome these to enable us to have the planning consent we needed for the operation of our business.  This planning permission has enabled our business to implement rapid growth plans and there has been significant value in the permission that Foxes Rural achieved for us.
