What our clients say about us

With over 40 years of operating in this field we have enjoyed
long working relationships with a number of loyal clients.

Here are a handful of the comments we have received.

JJ Designs has achieved for us what other planning advisors said was not possible!! I could not be more pleased and highly recommend them, they are efficient, reliable, knowledgeable and persistent!

Luxury Homeowner, Bedfordshire

I’ve used J&J Design for over 25 years now – which says it all.  They have always provided a very professional and knowledgeable service which over the years has produced some very impressive results.  I have absolutely no problem in recommending their services to others.

East Anglian Entrepreneur, Cambridgeshire

John has an excellent depth of knowledge of planning issues. He has helped our company navigate the complex minefield of planning law and achieve successful schemes. We look forward to working with John again in the future.

Regional Property Developer, Bedfordshire

I would recommend John Shephard

He goes into a lot of detail to get it over the line.

Regional Property Consultant, Berkshire

John and the team at J and J have a base of knowledge and experience that is second to none. They are very methodical and thorough and I believe this is what leads them to achieving the best results possible when it comes to planning gain. I consider John an expert in the area and would recommend J and J to anyone.

East Anglian Property Developer, Bedfordshire

Up-to-date and clear understanding of planning and development constraints and opportunities at a regional and national level, as a basis for informed decision making and sound advice.

Leading Property Consultant, Buckinghamshire

Breadth of experience and knowledge, particularly case law and previous appeals. Especially appreciate quarterly updates which stand out compared with other consultants. J & J Design updates are particularly relevant to the region and industry.

J and J Design are extremely knowledgeable and were successful in obtaining immediate planning permission for an extension and also a substantial barn following an appeal. Would not hesitate to recommend their services.

I was recommended J J Design and that personal recommendation is always a good starting point for me. The service I have received from day one has by exemplary. The information provided has always been accurate, timely and professional. There is never any pressure and all the staff are extremely patient and helpful. Prior to using them I had viewed the planning process as complex and stressful. Their management completely mitigated these worries. Their cost effective service has prevented us making any expensive mistakes in a subject area where everyone has an opinion to offer. I know that seeking their expertise was all we needed. Lovely people with a genuine interest in their subject which they are experts in.

We have always found John to be friendly, knowledgable and efficient. His guidance through our planning process and support during the build were very much appreciated. We would recommend J&J Design and will hopefully be using their services again in the near future.

Excellent service from start to finish. J&J Design's knowledge in the area and processes will ensure the best result possible. Dealing with the complexities in the planning world requires you to 'speak the language' and as a basic developer this would take an inordinate amount of time to master. John and the team can cut through this red tape for you and submit the best case possible. I am VERY happy with the result he helped obtain for me.
We have had a very good experience, very helpful and prompt with replies to queries, overall we feel an excellent service!!

Extremely knowledgeable and thorough in all aspects of planning. Would highly recommend as they are great people both at what they do and in general. I really enjoy working with them!

I really enjoyed working with you and your team and hope we work together on many more projects in the future.

We are very appreciative of the support given by John Shephard and the team.

We are very happy with the outcome. Looking forward to working with them again in future.

Very satisfied, excellent work, very professional.
