We worked with WEA Planning in 2015 on a successful application to convert part of our office building from commercial to residential use. William Avery handled the project with a high level of efficiency and thoughtfulness. He guided us around a number of potential regulatory obstacles, dealt with all correspondence with the local planning authority, introduced an architect when needed and delivered excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

We appointed Will for both our loft and kitchen extension application. Initially I was hesitant of appoint a planning consultant and though I could do it myself. After having our initial consultation with Will I soon realise that it wasn't a simple process as our situation was unusual and there were many ways of approaching what we wanted to do. Will was very knowledgable and experienced in dealing with the council, it wasn't an easy process as the council was a nightmare. I now think that if we hadn't appointed WEA we would no have got our plans approved. I would highly recommend Will, its nice dealing with an honest and down to earth person.

Will successfully achieved planning for a loft extension at our house where we know the previous occupants were refused. We were very impressed and grateful for all the work put in. Great job.
Sarah Bruce-Ball, LB Richmond
William Avery helped us before we even knew we had to have retrospective planning permission - completely free advice which was invaluable. When we found out we did need planning permission he dealt with everything in a highly professional manner and was always at the end of the phone if we needed his help. I highly recommend his services.

I met Will Avery after my planning application for lawful development was refused by council. Will helped me to put together a new application and asked to submit new information and evidence, and produced a perfect application and submitted to the council and followed the progress till the end. Will was in contact with the planning officer all the time and made sure they read and understand all the evidence, so this time my application was granted thanks to Will's help and support . If you are looking for an honest, hard working and friendly planning consultant I highly recommend Will Avery

Outbuilding, Oxford City
In June 2015 I purchased a house in Oxford on a flood plane, with a view to designing and building a studio in my garden (I am a professional artist). The nature of my work and the risks of the area meant that the planning and building process faced a number of complicated obstacles to negotiate. WEA planning worked closely with me and the builder from conception through to completion. From start to finish Will was incredibly pragmatic, finding and alerting us to potential minefields at every problem. The process could have been lengthy, expensive and stressful, but thanks to Will's help we were able to move at pace and complete everything efficiently and with minimum fuss and cost. Will's honesty, expertise and hard work made the whole process pain free. I can;t thank him enough and would recommend WEA planning to anyone in need of planning assistance and support.

For a good planning consultant, technical knowledge is important, but that in itself is not enough. You must be able to get on well with each other.
Before I met William, I had met other planning consultants, but I did not feel that I would like to work with them. There was a feeling of uneasiness, a feeling that we would not get on well with each other.
I met William and instantly he put me at ease. His warm and welcoming manner, gave me a feeling that I would like to work with him on a long term basis, as I knew that the multiple applications would take many months.
Over the next many months that followed, when I was not able to understand some aspect of planning law, William was always willing to explain to me in great detail, the complexities of planning law. I would like to mention here, his patience and understanding in explaining very confusing planning laws.
If I was to look for a planning consultant for another project, I would definitely choose to work with William again.
