Testimonials

Globe prides itself on providing high quality value for money services to its clients. We use our expertise to provide an informed, innovative and professional service that exceeds expectations. Here’s feedback from some of our clients:

We have tried on numerous occasions over the past 30 years to get this property de-listed with no success but Globe have exceeded expectations with complete success and the property has now been demolished. They have succeeded where many others have failed though lack of knowledge and expertise. An excellent organisation with all staff pleasant and efficient even though this was a difficult and tedious process – will use them again for any new projects.
David Forington, T H Forington & Son Limited

Small, personal, friendly and specialist organisation that buys into our company’s mission, which is reflected in the way that our schemes are presented to the community and the planning authorities.
Paul de Savary, Home From Home Care Limited

I am pleased that I chose to take the independent advice I received from Globe Consultants rather than the Council’s planning officers who saw no future in my proposals and were firmly opposed. In the end the matter was called in to Committee and the scheme was approved with councillors openly querying how officers could have reached the conclusions they had as they appeared to ignore all common sense.
Roger Shaw, Housing Developer

Globe Consultants are a young, proactive, vibrant and enthusiastic planning consultancy with whom I have been associated with for a number of years. The NHS, like many modern organisations today are all too often presented with difficult and challenging planning issues and it is to Globe Consultants who I turn when faced with these challenges. This I have done on many occasions and whether it be a small or large issue the service received from Globe is always the same. Their service is customer focused, sensitive to our needs, and above all extremely professional. There is no doubt their particularly well informed approach, professionalism and dedication has helped the NHS and the community of Lincolnshire to successfully complete a number of recent multi million pound NHS developments.
Len Hartley, Capital Projects Manager, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

We have worked with the planning specialists at Globe for many years and have benefited from their expertise in producing the detailed and complex reports required for large scale planning applications, such as integrated planning statements, flood risk and design & access statements. They have also skilfully handled some sensitive planning issues and led negotiations with planners, local community leaders and the public on our behalf. They have extensive in-depth knowledge of national and local planning policies that goes well beyond our in-house capabilities and have therefore been able to make representations on our behalf to the local authority and statutory bodies on policy matters. Globe understand our company and the many projects we are involved with as well as if they were a member of the team.
Operations Manager, Manorcrest

I have worked with Globe Consultants over recent years on a number of planning applications for residential development schemes, all of which have resulted in a successful outcome. I have always found that they have a pragmatic and sensible approach to planning and their advice to be sound and balanced.
Tony Lawton, Managing Director, Lindum Homes

Very diligent & professional approach. Always kept me informed of developments. Very easy to deal with & believe they will always ‘go the extra mile’.
Steven Schofield, Woodland Estates Limited

Achieved exactly what we wanted.
Matt Jones, LN5 Estates Limited

Globe handled the entire process with extreme professionalism. Some of the dynamics amongst the parties involved were difficult and yet Globe managed to make everyone feel that they were both involved, listened to and an important part of the process. The Alliance worked with Russell and Ann, both of whom brought their own knowledge, expertise and level headed methodologies to the table, for the benefit of their client. Their research, quality of discussion and thinking and sound rationale were very welcome and essential for grounding a very diverse and challenging group. I understand that satisfaction levels amongst the group members were extremely high…it’s a rarity but in this the whole group were united. To achieve the levels of satisfaction in the process/service amongst all the members, as Globe did, was a huge achievement and it set the alliance on firm ground for moving forward.
Deborah Munt, for the National Alliance for Arts Health and Wellbeing

Russell and the team went about their task efficiently providing timely and accurate information. They communicated well with all representatives of the team at all levels and took the hassle out of planning applications (which can be troublesome). They utilised their resources to ensure issues were overcome quickly and without fuss. A highly qualified team of experts who I very much miss working with now the project has been successfully concluded.
Gerry Maher, G4S

Phil and the Team were exceptional, responding to queries / requests and really going the extra mile to ensure the
project went as smoothly as possible through the planning process.
Chris Orwin, Design Manager, Willmott Dixon Construction Limited

Lynette and the rest of the team I felt gave a really positive and efficient service.
Ian Miller, Greggs Plc

The team fully understood the project and the context of reviewing the Business Plan, and, as requested, deconstructed the assumptions, premises and financial projections completely, tested them fully, contributed strong, evidenced ideas, and put the plan back together with appropriate adjustments and recommendations. The process was a wholly collaborative and dialectic one, in which we all built confidence in the end result. One of the most satisfying, and satisfactory, pieces of consultancy work I’ve been involved in, not just because it broadly supported the thrust of the Business Plan.
Huw Champion, Project Leader, New Performance Venue, Doncaster MBC

The service from Globe, often under difficult circumstances and amid political sensitivities was excellent. Overall the team individually and as a company offered balanced, timely and pertinent advice that challenged original assumptions and added value to the projects.
Tim Crawshaw Principal Planning Officer, Darlington Borough Council

Globe provided support at short notice for the Humber Rural Development Partnership in the early stages of the Humber Rural Pathfinder. Specifically, Globe took a leading role in the development of the economy strand of the Pathfinder’s work, including facilitating a substantial workshop event. As ever, Globe’s approach to running the event was fresh while seasoned, and incisive while considerate, being careful to accommodate the views and abilities of all participants. On the strategic side, Globe’s experience came to the fore with comprehensive analysis and intelligence input leading to innovative but realistic conclusions and recommendations.
Mick King, Executive Manager, Humber Economic Partnership Limited

We commissioned Globe Consultants to research the market demand from small and medium sized firms to inform planning for the new Lincolnshire Leadership and Management Centre (LLMC) in the new Faculty of Business & Law Building at the University of Lincoln. The project which Globe delivered exceeded our expectations and was invaluable in confirming our plans for this aspect of the Centre’s operations. The completed LLMC can be seen at: http://www.llmc.org.uk/
Dr David Rae, Professor of Business & Enterprise, University of Lincoln

Globe have provided the Rural Service Network with support on data analysis and interpretation. Data quality and accuracy is very important to us and Elizabeth who does the work takes a very thorough and rigorous approach. She is also very innovative with the use of data analysis tools and this has helped us to improve the way we publish our information. Globe are both professional and flexible and have provided considerable added value to the work we do.
Dan Bates, Performance Director, Rural Services Network

Excellent service, concise and to the point advice, we were always kept informed. The Planning Application was dealt with quickly and professionally and any arising issues addressed, they were always helpful if we had questions. We anticipated a lot of problems with the Planning application but it turned out to be a quite smooth process. Globe have lots of local knowledge and know what they are doing. We would have not been able to deal with the planning application in such a professional manner. We would recommend Globe to someone who needs that sort of service and actually we have already mentioned them to people.
Mr & Mrs Mahoney

Achieved what they set out to do. Very professional and knowledgeable.
