Lucy Carpenter Planning

Planning Consultant

I am an independent planning consultant providing specialist advice on all aspects of the planning process. I have over twenty years of planning and development experience in the public and private sector and an accredited member of the Royal Institute of Town Planning.

My services have consistently enabled clients to achieve their development aspirations, by successful navigation through the planning process, for commercial, residential and agricultural developments.

Whilst being based on the Hertfordshire/Essex borders, I work throughout the South East of England, but particularly within Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire, London and Northamptonshire.

I have a strong working relationship with architects, surveyors, highway engineers, flood risk professionals, landscape architects, historic building experts and all other related professions; to provide a full planning service.


I deal with a range of planning issues, with particular emphasis on development control.

I can help you with :

  • Planning applications including the preparation of validation documents to accompany applications
  • Planning appeals
  • Planning appraisals
  • Negotiations with Local Planning authorities
  • Submission of objections to development proposals on behalf of groups or individuals
  • Design and Access Statements
  • Enforcement appeals/representations
