Philip Atkins
Philip’s Profile

Philip started his planning career in the late 80’s working on high profile projects such as the City of London’s Guildhall extension and the redevelopment of the British Engineering works in Swindon (MacArthur Glenn Factory Outlet site).

His main area of expertise is based in and around Central London, delivering development comprising sensitive conservation/listed building developments, high density mixed use schemes, tall building/tower schemes, city centre and complex brownfield sites.

With over 25 years of central London experience working for major architectural practises such as Rolfe Judd and Real Estate advisors such as, Fuller Peiser, DTZ (Head of Planning) and most recently CBRE (Head of City Planning), Philip is always looking to provide creative, commercial advice, working alongside clients as their planning and development advisor of choice.

Philip and his team have a varied and interesting client base drawn from the hotel, residential, and education sectors. Philip has a strong belief in working with the client to understand and help guide their development aspiration and likes nothing more than passionately selling the dream to residents and fellow professionals at the central London Councils and GLA.

Outside of work Philip makes time for his friends and sport mad family, playing golf, tennis, padel tennis (try it), managing the Leatherhead Youth Cricket team and watching Crystal Palace FC.

David is experienced in delivering development for clients in London, especially hotel development. Prior to Planning Resolution, David worked at CBRE and DTZ, and initially cut his teeth at a local planning authority in Surrey.

As a result of this balance between private and public sector experience, David has significant expertise in the workings, procedure and requirements of the statutory planning process and is therefore able to provide tailored consultancy advice to clients in successfully negotiating the planning process.

Outside of work, David’s time is spent with his young family, with any spare time watching rugby.
