Hepburns Planning Consultancy is centrally based on the Island in Merstone on an old pig farm within converted outbuildings. Hepburns exercised permitted development rights for the conversion and used local businesses to supply and undertake the building works.
As planning legislation has changed the site is being developed to bring forward a residential unit (through the prior notification process at appeal) and a solar panel scheme on site, enabling Hepburns to be self-sufficient in electricity. Our own carbon footprint is important to us. Planning permission exists for a further residential building in the countryside as well as offices and storage/distribution units.
Hepburns has four key members of staff with two chartered planners as well as a team of professional consultants from complementary professions. The ability to source expertise for all aspects of development means that continuity of advice can be provided to deal with a wide range of services.
