"Hollins Planning was engaged to support St George's Academy in our bid for an appeal for planning permission, after it had been rejected by the Local District Council. The work was first class and I would not hesitate to engage them again. The service they provided from the beginning to the end of a long process was exceptionally good: communication throughout was prompt and their sensitive work with the planners meant that we not only won our planning appeal, but also costs as well. We could not be more delighted with their services. In terms of value for money I would say they would be hard to beat. Hollins planning provides an excellent service at very good rates. We cannot praise them highly enough."

A big thank you, from a very happy customer'.
