Our Planning Department is expanding this week with the arrival of Ollie Thomas. Ollie, who lives in North Shropshire, is a Business Management with Law graduate and has a Masters Degree in Planning. He has joined Halls after 5 years working for Shropshire Council where he was a Senior Planning Officer, working with landowners and developers within council policy. We have received a huge increase in requests for planning advice in recent months and we are delighted that Ollie is joining the team as a Planning Consultant. He brings experience in managing complex applications and interpreting local policy which will enable us to target, promote and secure planning consent across residential, commercial and agricultural property types, meeting the needs of our diverse client bases and their communities.

Our Planning Department was established nearly 20 years ago and offers services from initial enquiries; preparing and submitting planning applications; liaising with local planning authorities; handling planning appeals and pursuing long term planning promotion through the Local Plan Process. With experience across the commercial, residential and agricultural sectors, it regularly deals with instructions on a variety of planning matters across new-build development, redevelopment and conversions of existing buildings, and maximising opportunities of developing buildings and land in the countryside.

For any planning queries please contact Ollie Thomas on 01743 450 700 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
