The planning system is highly complex, with ever-changing legislation and requirements for assessing development proposals. The need for sound professional advice has never been so important. It can be the key to unlocking development opportunities and crucial to the successful delivery of proposals through the planning system. Good planning advice can also resolve enforcement related problems.

Bloomfields has the expertise and experience to navigate this complex process. We aim to remove uncertainty and help realise the full potential of land and property assets. We can make aspirations reality, whether they are large or small.

THE PRACTICE

Bloomfields is an independent firm of Chartered Town Planners providing planning and development consultancy services. Anna Bloomfield established the practice in 1994 where she developed an excellent reputation for providing a first class professional, friendly and cost effective service. In 2013 the practice merged with Lambert & Foster to build upon the reputation of both companies and to expand their level of services. However, the practice maintains its ethos of personally managing your case. Bloomfields’ philosophy is to provide honest, clear and sound planning advice to clients with the highest standard of professional integrity. We work for individuals, limited companies, residents groups, local authorities and other public bodies. Our high standards of service are applied equally across this spectrum, whether the instruction relates to a complex mixed-use development scheme or a house extension.

  • We have worked with Anna, and Bloomfields, for over 15 years.  During that time she and the team have provided an exemplary professional planning service, at times going well beyond what was required. Anna in particular is tenacious, knowledgeable, well organised and often the lynchpin in ensuring that teams of other professionals all work together and are kept fully informed.  She is also approachable and tackles problems with a sense of humour which makes the arduous process of achieving planning permission a little more bearable. Bloomfields has achieved some excellent successes and we would highly recommend them.

  • Due to the efforts of Tom Ogden and the team at Bloomfields, I am delighted to have obtained planning permission for a bungalow on my land at Stockbury. This could not have been achieved without the knowledge, the meticulous attention to detail, the perseverance and the patience of Tom throughout what was a very tricky and involved procedure. Great result! Thanks, Tom! Thanks, Bloomfields!

  • We were recommended to Bloomfields after we purchased an unusual building with a very difficult planning history, with the aim of converting it into a house. They worked tirelessly, through many setbacks and achieved our desired outcome. We now have a home of which we are justly proud. The professional team treated us as individuals, not ‘clients’ and their enthusiasm for the project matched ours. They exceeded any expectations we had and shouldered all of the stress and worry associated with liaising with the Council. They always kept our aims to the forefront and kept us well informed at every stage. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Bloomfields to others facing planning related issues.
