“As the Estate Manager for Lingley Mere Business Park, Cole Easdon supported the company in delivering the section 106 Sustainable Travel requirements for 10 years. During that time they delivered technical advice, technical analysis of travel surveys for up to 3500 employees and facilitated our quarterly stakeholder meetings. These were professionally run and the information provided was excellent and timely. A change in strategy means we will not be able to use Cole Easdon going forward but we will be using them for Ad Hoc analysis work in the future.”

“The consultant was knowledgeable, professional and efficient. Good value for money. I would highly recommend them.”
Julie Jeanes, Linwood School
“I was asked by Senior Management here at East Lindsey DC to organise a training session for all planning Officers regarding SUDs and drainage matters given it is a contentious issue when considering planning applications. Dean and Jess did a really interesting presentation that we all learnt so much from, irrespective of our varying levels of expertise in the topic before attending the training. A large number of the team made a point of telling me after the training how much they had learnt and what a help it will be when such matters arise with planning applications. There was good balance of technical and non technical information backed up with examples which made the training even more interesting. Finally there was a very good introduction relating to the regulatory framework around the SUDs initiative which is so useful to planners given the start point when considering applications is always the relevant policy and regulations. I would recommend this course to all Development Management Teams.”
Chris Panton, Service Manager Development Control (Head of Planning), East Lindsey DC

“We often recommend Cole Easdon to clients for their drainage and highways related work and we often hear clients speak highly of the work they carry out. In my opinion the reason for their success is that they are competitive on price but importantly can also deliver on the quality of work they carry out and do so in a timely fashion. They are also not afraid to think outside the box and address a community’s concerns, something that has become increasingly more important under the localism banner.”

With their technical input, we were able to work up a masterplan that best accommodates the technical issues affecting the site to create a deliverable and viable development.”
