‘Thomas Gabriel is a hardworking, efficient and trustworthy individual who puts a lot of effort in to his work. He designed a rear extension for my bungalow and gained planning permission for it several years ago and he assisted in drafting a letter of objection for a proposed development near my property which would have had a significant impact upon myself and my neighbours. It was clear from the planning application and that letter that he knows his job and has a good understanding of the planning system and the way that proposed developments can affect neighbouring properties.

Thomas has always been a friendly, helpful person, never refusing to help if needed.

I can recommend Thomas Gabriel for a job as a Planning Consultant in your company and I am sure he will do a great job. He would be a great asset for any business.

I would like to offer Tom Gabriel my sincere thanks for all his endeavours in handling the planning application for the construction of our conservatory.’

‘Tom’s visit to my home, for a routine inspection, revealed that a building company I had engaged with, were wrong to advise me that planning permission was not required. As a result, I appointed Tom to handle my application, and he used his extensive knowledge to submit a detailed application consisting of six pages. This, however, was refused by the Council, demonstrating that, had I taken the builder’s advice, we would have faced major repercussions at the hands of the Council.

Tom is now handling my appeal and again showed his expertise and experience by submitting another detailed six pages, refuting the Council’s claims and instead putting forward a strong case for approval of our initial application.

We are now confident of a successful outcome, thanks to a first- class service delivered by Tom, whom we can’t thank enough. Without hesitation, I would urge anyone considering planning matters, to engage Tom’s services.’
