Donna Lynn – Director Lynn Construction Ltd

I can highly recommend the services of Bancroft Consulting and have now used the company on several occasions. The first time we used Chris, we had applied to convert some derelict farm buildings to residential properties. Unfortunately Highways had issues about the access which could well have put a stop to our development altogether. Chris managed to put together a comprehensive report which overcame these objections and ultimately saved our development. More recently we have consulted with Chris over another residential project with a tricky access and yet again he has advised us how to design the access to maximise the site whilst keeping the Highways department happy. He has pulled out all the stops on several occasions to answer questions quickly and give us advice which has been much appreciated. Thank you to all the Team at Bancroft Consulting.

Neil Hart, Project Manager, National Trust

Bancroft Consulting provided a great service, and in particular were very responsive in turning round the commission in a short space of time against tight deadlines. I would use them again.

Haydn R Watkins, Dip Arch RIBA, Watkins Limited Chartered Architects

I have worked with Bancroft Consulting for several years on a number of varied schemes. They have always provided a thoroughly professional service with sound advice to the benefit of the client. They have a friendly manner which makes working with them easy, and they are able to communicate in a clear and concise manner. The quality of the reports they prepare is excellent as are the results they achieve when negotiating with local authorities. I recommend their services without equivocation.

Henry Littlejohn, Director, John Littlejohn Designer Homes Ltd

Having dealt with several consultancy practices over the years, I would not hesitate to consider Bancroft consulting amongst the best I have worked with. The ease of communication, their willingness to resolve issues and their ability work to tight schedules is invaluable during the planning process. As a small developer, I found Bancroft an accessible consultancy, with reasonable fees, who understood the needs of our type of business.

Rob Bailey, Director, Swallow Hill Homes

We had submitted a permitted development application for change of use of some buildings to residential dwellings and office space. Highways raised an objection 5 days before a decision was due. Permitted development applications can’t have time extensions so we had a short time to persuade Highways their position was unreasonable. We had dealt with Bancroft consulting in the past, upon explaining the position they had a traffic survey done that day, and the report demonstrating the safety of the access sent to Highways 2 days later. Highways subsequently did a U turn on their position and the planning was granted.

Elaine Barry, Planning & Projects Clerk, Aston Clinton Parish Council

We commissioned Bancroft Consulting to help us identify a solution to the growing traffic problems in our village and to look into the impacts of the increase in developments in the area. The work they produced was exceptional, not only in helping us identify a solution by providing us with an in depth survey and traffic mitigation proposals, but in the way they responded to our many questions and the help and guidance they gave us along the way. The results of the work they produced has enabled us to gain support from the County Council in implementing the mitigation proposals and aided them in their negotiations in obtaining S106 contributions from developments in the village. We thoroughly recommend their services and would use them again.

James & Helen Whitby

We appointed Bancroft to help us with designing a new access for our house and they were instrumental in helping us achieve planning permission. Chris and his team worked well with us and the local authority to make sure we got what we wanted and the local council were happy with the design.

We were concerned that our small job might not be given the same level of attention as some of the other bigger projects that We know Bancroft also do, but this was not the case at all. Chris and his team responded quickly to enquiries and their knowledge of the regulations and policies that were relevant to our project was impeccable.

We are not planning on designing new accesses for our house again but should we ever need consultancy work on an issue like this again we would 100% use Bancroft again.

Kevin Tomlinson, Director, Westfield Planning Ltd

I have used Bancroft Consulting Ltd for technical and specialist highway advice to support a number of planning applications and appeals. You can always rely on them to provide a consistently high standard of professional service, often to quite tight time-scales, and at a very competitive price. I look forward to continuing to work with them and it is a pleasure to be able to commend and recommend their services.

K Matthews, Square Blue Developments

Bancroft Consulting have been involved with two of our most recent projects. Both sites had access problems that were overcome very quickly due to Bancroft Consulting’s input within our planning team. Increased Local Authority requirements for planning applications of the nature we deal in have made traffic assessments a requirement very early on in the submission stage.

Bancroft’s have certainly played a part in our recent successes and will continue to be called upon by ourselves in the future.

Neil Darroch, Managing Director, Cameron Darroch Associates

We have found Bancroft Consulting to provide an extremely professional service in respect of all aspects of traffic engineering and we will not hesitate to continue to recommend them to our client’s in the future. They are extremely good at working with the Local Authorities traffic engineers to achieve a technical resolution to sometimes very complex issues allowing subsequent development opportunities to be realised by our clients. We look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with them.

Christopher Merriman, Managing Director, Merriman Property

Merriman have used Bancroft Consulting on projects varying in size recently and have found them to be professional, speedy and efficient at all times. I have admired their ability to give sound pragmatic on site advice followed by thorough and well presented reporting. I will continue to employ them for our highway requirements in the future.

Chris Newton, Estates Manager, East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust

Bancroft Consulting was appointed by the East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust as part of a recent project connected with delivering new facilities for the ambulance service. Bancroft Consulting’s instruction and brief was to help prepare and deliver the necessary mandatory travel plan documentation as identified under the Breeam assessment for the premises.

The company has provided us with an outstanding service which was both professional and proactive conscious of the short time scales that was available for delivery of the documentation. I look forward to and have no hesitation in utilising Bancroft’s services again on any future projects that we may be required to deliver.

Kish Patel, Head of Commissioning (Buildings), NHS Leicestershire & Rutland

I have only praise for Bancroft Consulting. They provide practical suggestions for measures and help us make them work. The staff working with us are professional in every way and have provided us with help and support in all stages of developing our Travel Plans, which are now associated with 10 separate buildings in our City developed over a 6 year period.

I have been impressed by their knowledge and pro-active, helpful approach. Of particular assistance has been the input received in liaising with our local authority to ensure our Travel Plans continuously meet all the necessary requirements.
