Never a dull day as a planning consultant

It’s not all about submitting applications and writing planning statements as a planning consultant, and being a graduate means that you get a chance to work on all of the other types of jobs. Sometimes we play a ‘project management’ role creating programmes and managing the whole application process, critiquing designs, drawings and other documents.


Over the past couple of weeks, other work has involved writing an objection letter on behalf of a client against a food market close to their building. This was an interesting task, with the shoe on the other foot, as it is usually other people objecting against us!


We have an excellent Heritage team at Montagu Evans and this means we get to work on fascinating projects which have historic significance. This week I have started to undertake a ‘Heritage, Townscape and Visual Impact Assessment’ for an old printing works in Holborn. This involved a lot of research into the area’s history using conservation area appraisals, listed building entries and other sources and is an interesting way of learning a bit of history of London’s streets.
