DRK Planning is a multi-disciplinary planning practice offering dedicated, personal, and highly responsive Town and Country Planning consultancy services to clients across all sectors in the UK.

The Company is based in West Hampstead, London and was established 12 years ago by David Kemp, a qualified Chartered Surveyor specialising in Planning for more than 20 years, who was later Called to the Bar (Middle Temple) in July 2004 and Admitted to the Roll as a Solicitor in August 2006.

It is a specialist niche practice regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) which is primarily focussed on:

  • Advising private clients, developers, investors
  • Working with joint venture partners on its own property developments

The Company’s expertise brings together planning, development, and legal competence focused on maximising development value and reducing planning risk. The company is focussed mainly on fee-paying planning consultancy with private clients but is also fostering niche relationships on development projects where there may be an opportunity for joint venture investment with development partners.

DRK Planning see the bigger picture

We met David when we were having issues obtaining planning permission for one of our more problematic developments. He was one of several planning consultants that were put forward for this particular site, however, after reading David’s assessment of the situation we were dealing with, the decision to work with David was obvious. His honesty and knowledge about planning and how to approach the problem was the assurance to us that we were working with a true professional. We have found his advice and service vital to our business. He is someone who sees the bigger picture and with his vast experience in planning, we have always been confident that we are in safe hands. We are currently working with DRK Planning and will continue to use them, we cannot recommend them highly enough.

Collaborative Approach

David comes from a multi-disciplinary planning background, and his experience is evident in the excellent advice that I have received from him over the years. Despite the vast knowledge and experience in his own possession, I was impressed with the collaborative approach that David has taken with me (the client), my architect, and even the planning officers! I would highly recommend David's planning consultancy services for property developers and landowners of all sizes.

Knowledge and expertise, second to none

I can highly recommend David as his knowledge and expertise in his field are second to none. Using his experience and professionalism he managed to bring what was turning into a tricky application into a successful one well within the proposed time frame! We have a great relationship with David and continue to work with him on several ongoing schemes.
