What our clients say about us...

 

“…an outstanding choice to work with on our neighbourhood plan…”

"Stuart Todd Associates were an outstanding choice to work with on our neighbourhood plan; friendly, reliable and professional support was always there when it was most needed.  The attention to detail, intuitive understanding of communities and delivery to deadlines has been outstanding.”

Tracey Bell, Clerk, Dunkeswell Parish Council

 

“…always delivers on time and to a very high quality…”

We engaged Stuart following a competitive tender process to undertake the delivery of our Playing Pitch Strategy, and have worked with him previously on other Local Plan evidence base work. The scope of the work we needed was data analysis, strategy writing and action plan formulation, as well as an in depth knowledge of the Sport England methodology and a practical knowledge of its application.  Stuart is extremely meticulous and his knowledge and understanding of this area is very in-depth. His engagement with us as his client has been excellent, providing valuable and honest advice, and his work is always delivered on time and to a very high quality.  I would gladly recommend him.”

Amy Colbran, Policy Planner, Swindon Borough Council

 

“…an extraordinary ability to give that so important little extra…”

Stuart Todd came to South Petherton to help the Parish Council navigate the tricky waters of neighbourhood planning.   It gives me great pleasure on behalf of the Steering Group and Parish Council to thank Stuart for his huge effort, professional commitment and knowledge, infinite patience and an extraordinary ability to give that so important little extra. It was a great pleasure to work with Stuart.”

Cllr. Graham Gatehouse, South Petherton Parish Council and Chair of Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

 

“…high degree of technical knowledge and expertise…”

“Stuart Todd is my kind of planner - someone who sees the people that use the buildings and the land; and recognises that it’s all about enabling them to live and work happily and harmoniously with their surroundings. Stuart has a high degree of technical knowledge and expertise. He has proven adept at applying it and sharing it in a way that enables his client group to engage meaningfully with the planning process.”

Paul Weston, Community Consultant

 

“…easy to work with, knowledgeable and thorough…”

“Stuart worked with Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership (SASP) to develop our Sports Facility and Playing Pitch Strategies for Bournemouth & Poole.  Stuart’s easy to work with, knowledgeable and thorough in everything he does, what Stuart said he said he’d do was done on time and to an excellent standard; he offers a bespoke service that we don’t often see in consultants, something that comes from listening, background research and attention to detail.  I’d certainly use Stuart again, whether that’s for sports related strategies or other open space plans and strategies work tying into our local planning processes.”

Michael Rowlands, Parks Development Manager, Bournemouth Borough Council

 

“…highly valued part of the team…”

“Stuart Todd has taught on our MSc in Sustainable Planning for a number of years and is highly regarded by our students. He provides expert insight into place making policy, governance and stakeholder engagement. He’s a highly valued part of the team.”

Dr Richard Southern FRGS, Dean of the School of Life & Medical Sciences, University of Hertfordshire

 

“…an enviable eye to detail and quality of client service…”

“Stuart undertakes, completes and presents work within deadline with an enviable eye to detail and quality of client service. He is a genuine pleasure to work in partnership with. Stuart has a sociable soul with a very well-established and broad network of professional contacts to match.”

Martin S Lee, Chartered Town & Country Planning Consultant, Martin Lee Associates
