We do thorough authoritative local research. Our due diligence reports, produced by a team headed up by a well-renowned psephologist, David Boothroyd, are both insightful and respected.

Our research will show which groups are likely to oppose, and which support. It will also show what the political climate is for your scheme, and the likelihood of it being favourably received.

The same team produce the localcouncils.co.uk website. If you only want to know who controls a council and when the next election is in this district, this site is for you. And when you’ve found out, come and commission a due diligence report from us.

The resulting planning application did not receive a single objection and was unanimously approved by the council’s planning committee. The strategy was spot on.”
