"We have used the CODE team for several years now and their approach to our brief and the service from them has been second to none. We have a complex, Grade 2 listed site in the heart of Haverhill’s busy town centre. Code Development Planners have successfully negotiated with the local authority, Conservation and Historic England to guide us through a well thought out development programme. I rate them very highly."
"As a landowner entrusting the promotion of family land assets to a promoter it is important to trust the whole promotion team. In promoting a 1,000 home scheme we were given huge confidence by the professionalism and skill displayed by CODE Development Planners and are thankful for the courtesy and understanding shown at all times by CODE’s team."
"When the process became very complicated, we would sometimes call Mike up to help. He would always be happy to explain all aspects of the planning and post planning conditions and agreements, and do so in a way that was clear and easy to understand."
"CODE Development Planners are an outstanding planning consultancy. That Brightwell Lakes has become an award winning new settlement development, and granted planning permission only a year after submission, was due in large part to their professionalism and efficiency. They are not just team players but also led the team brilliantly, with inspiration and confidence. I unhesitatingly recommend Mike and Helen for a wide range of planning projects."

"We have used the CODE Development Planners team for many years as our first choice planning consultants. As a bespoke and specialist planning consultancy CODE provide a highly responsive and knowledgeable service to meet our various business requirements."
"CODE Development Partners advised the Biddenham Estate on the promotion of its land adjoining the northern section of the Bedford Western Bypass during the period 2013-2015. This was a complex scheme due to the requirement of the development to assist delivery of a major public road which was part funded by a variety of Government sources. CODE managed the consultant team and negotiated with the Local Planning Authority and other landowning interests. The extensive knowledge and experience of CODE’s partners ensured that the varied objectives of all the stakeholders did not prevent agreement being reached and above all they secured a very satisfactory planning permission for the client."
"We have used Code Development Planners as our chosen planning consultants on a highly contentious public promotion of a sizeable Green Belt site. Their expertise in liaising with stakeholders, consultant team, Local Planning Authority and District Councillors has meant we have received substantial community and local support as the project progresses. Their expert steering and guidance of the project team through the process has been invaluable."
