Mike Harris Planning Consultancy – knowledge from the inside


My name is Mike Harris, I am a professional town planner with my own planning consultancy business.

Following 17 years in Government Planning Departments I am now able to offer to my clients a unique insight into gaining approval for their planning applications and winning their planning appeals.

My focus is to assist applicants through the complexities of the application process, with a particular emphasis on Residential Schemes, Householder Extensions and the planning appeal process, where I have 15 years of direct experience while working at Calderdale MBC. Over this period, I never lost an appeal based on my recommendation.

Please note we only accept cases where we feel that there is a reasonable chance of success.
