Linda Wright is a planning consultant and owner of PLANiTWRiGHT — an independent town planning consultancy and development service. Linda has enjoyed a successful 30-year career in planning in both the public and private sectors — during which she has seen, and dealt with, a wide variety of planning problems. Her common sense approach, and insight into the town and country planning system is invaluable.

In 2010 Linda set up PLANiTWRiGHT in the North West to offer professional planning advice to clients. Linda says ‘I am delighted to be able to offer a no-nonsense planning service to get the results my clients are looking for.’

As the owner of the business you can expect a proactive and personal service from Linda as well as close liaison with a team of other highly skilled and experienced planning and development professionals including, solicitors, barristers, architects, architectural technologists, surveyors, highway consultants, ecologists, acoustic experts, heritage consultants and of course Council planners.

Linda says ‘I adopt a practical approach to planning issues and always get a huge sense of achievement and satisfaction when a proposal is approved and I can tell my client their good news.’

People have different reasons for wanting to obtain planning permission. Sometimes it’s to build their dream home or establish or grow a property investment portfolio or perhaps expand a business, other times to increase the value of land and buildings to provide income for a retirement fund or the children’s inheritance. Whatever the reason Linda can draw upon her wealth of experience and guide you through the labyrinth of the English or Welsh planning system, helping you to achieve your goal.

Linda’s extensive knowledge of the planning system was gained in a wide variety of roles including Council planner, South East regional controller for the telecommunications company ‘3’, policy manager for the Home Builders Federation and more recently Group Planning Manager for Elan Homes.

She worked for several years as a town planner for the Government on the island of Bermuda. Linda is also a guest lecturer in planning studies at Liverpool and Manchester Universities.
