The 3BM Studio provides a town planning consultancy service to complement its architectural practice.

At 3BM Planning our philosophy is simple; we blend technical knowledge and experience to deliver a high-quality town planning service. We pride ourselves on being pro-active problem solvers who identify practical land and development solutions.

Drawing on extensive experience, 3BM Planning provides a bespoke town planning service tailored to meet individual client needs. We add value by minimising the risk associated with the planning process which may otherwise hinder development.
