I'd like to thank you very much for the work you undertook for CPRE for the Saxby Wind Turbine Inquiry. In particular, your professionalism from the start in quoting for the work, keeping me informed on progress and, finally, presenting CPRE's case at the Inquiry under the pressure of cross-examination.

Many thanks

I was delighted with the way in which KVA planning helped my worries – and those of my neighbours, we have a particularly sensitive issue with a neighbour who owns a paddock behind our houses and we were concerned as to what might happen to this with everyone wanting building land.

KVA have done a marvellous job in helping alleviate our immediate fears and have explained the process with the planning changes in relation to the local plan and the principles that should apply to the next 10 years.

Although I am delighted with this work and would recommend KVA to anyone, I am conscious that putting my name and village on this testimonial would not necessarily be helpful. However I am more than happy for KVA to pass my details on to anyone considering using their services and would be happy to talk to them directly.

A very pleased East Yorkshire Villager.

The North Yorkshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England along with our Coastal branch employed Katie Atkinson of KVA Planning to prepare a response to this very complex planning application. We were delighted with her work, the professional way in which she dealt with the many papers and the concise but comprehensive response she made for us. This must be the biggest planning application we have ever had to do with and we were delighted with her work.

The North Yorkshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England employed Katie Atkinson of KVA Planning to' Host' our Annual Meeting this year. This involved making sure the venue, president and speakers were ready for the meeting, noting attendees, taking the minutes and preparing a report of the meeting. We were pleased with the competent way in which she did this work for us.

We employed KVA Planning Consultancy to help us object to a series of agricultural developments which affected us. We were very happy with the outcome and do not feel that we would have achieved the same result without KVA’s professionalism throughout the process.

Thank you so much!

Mr and Mrs Bates


Thank you so much for the sound planning advice that you gave us when dealing with our appeal. Because of KVA’s attention to detail we were able to negotiate with the planning authority and achieve agreement and subsequent planning consent that all parties were satisfied with. We would certainly use your services again if required!

Mrs J Pearce


Thank you for your recent hard work dealing with my planning application. I can’t wait to sit in my new sun room once the new extension is constructed! Thank you so much, your services have taken the stress out of the planning process for me. You helped me to understand everything at each stage so that I knew what was happening at all times. I cannot recommend having a professional deal with the whole application process enough, it certainly made my life easier!

Thank you once again.
