South of England Show

Our director Mark Pellant and planning consultant Nigel Alderton have decided to work together to offer free mini consultations to visitors attending the popular South of England Show, 9-11th June.

We have successfully worked with Nigel on projects for many years, and with the Brighton planning service becoming ever more adversarial, we feel it’s more important than ever to collaborate with other professionals who have an intimate knowledge of the planning industry. Before becoming an independent consultant, Nigel worked as a planner for Lewes and Wealden district councils so he has an intimate inside knowledge of the local planning rules.

Teaming up in this manner means we can offer invaluable first-hand advice from both an architectural and a planning perspective. Last year we also had a stall at the event, and many people were interested to chat to us about their dream extension, internal remodel, refurbishment or other project yet they didn't have any of the details with them as they weren't expecting to get into a impromptu architectural consultation. So this time, we're calling on everyone to bring their floor plans and photos along as well as their ideas! We'll essentially be offering a free mini consultation for anyone who comes up to our stall.

The South of England Show, taking place near Haywards Heath and Gatwick Airport, is run by the South of England Agricultural Society and aims to celebrate and showcase country life in a family-friendly weekend event. It includes food, music, an animal parade, demonstrations and numerous stalls. You can get details and tickets (£20 each, kids go free) on their website. It's always a fun-packed day out for all involved. We're looking forward to seeing you there!
