About Us

Thanks for looking at our site.

I'm Peter Hakes, the principal of the consultancy which was established in 2004.  I am a Fellow of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Management Studies.
I am also a Member of the RTPI Independent Consultants Network.

Having been in planning since 1966 working in a number of local authorities, I have amassed a wealth of experience and expertise in all aspect of planning.

In 1992 I produced the first edition of Planning Legislation Update, and have been running this service ever since. See our Planning Legislation page.

Latterly and until leaving in 2004, I was Environmental Strategy Manager at Essex County Council, in charge of a team, whose aim was to support and promote the concept of sustainability.

Also in 1992 I initiated the Essex Guide to Environmental Impact Assessment on behalf of the Essex Development Control Forum and Essex Planning Officers' Association (EPOA).

I have lectured extensively on Environmental Impact Assessment at Anglia Ruskin University, Aberystwyth University, Colchester Institute, London School of Economics, University of Greenwich etc. and given numerous talks on the subject. I helped initiate the MSc course on Environmental Impact Assessment in Cambridge in 1992.
