At Gladman we pride ourselves on our expert approach to planning and the journey we embark on with our partners.

Don’t just take our word for it, here are some examples of what landowners and agents have to say about their experiences.

What Our Landowners Say About Us

“Gladman have been working on a development for us of around 110 houses, on land which is owned by several family members. From the start of the Promotion Agreement and during the planning process, their approach has been highly professional, keeping us informed throughout all the planning stages. Their attention to detail in terms of gaining local knowledge in the area and using this to best advantage has been impressive and instrumental to good communication with the local planning officers throughout.”

Sindy Bostock – Landowner at Linton, Derbyshire

“I would not hesitate in recommending the Gladman Team to any landowner considering their options with respect to unlocking the potential in their land asset and indeed, I have already done so on several occasions. Their collected professional approach inspired us with confidence and clarity throughout a complex and sometimes testing process. We were kept informed all the way through from the beginning to the successful conclusion.”

John Clarke – Landowner at Malpas, Cheshire

“Once a Promotion Agreement had been agreed and was in place, Gladman got down to the job of obtaining planning permission for our land with a professional, informed and dogged determination that proved successful. The Gladman Team’s understanding of national, regional and local planning matters and the strategic land market were key to achieving the goal of maximising the value received by the family.”

Nick Bowen – Landowner at Bloxham, Oxfordshire

“As landowners we have been working with Gladman to promote a site in Mid-Cheshire. We have found them to be proactive and responsive to the ever-changing needs of promoting such a site and they have assembled a good team of professionals both from within the organisation and externally, to provide the necessary highly skilled technical resources that are essential in the current planning climate. I have no hesitation in recommending them on any project or land promotion.”

Johnstone Godfrey – Landowner at Cuddington, Cheshire

“We have been very impressed by the whole team at Gladman. They have been extremely professional and have worked tirelessly to gain a consent on our site. I would have no problem in recommending them to other landowners; they are a straight talking, hardworking company who gets results.”

Tim Forrest – Landowner at Longridge, Lancashire

 What Our Agents Say About Us


“Having worked on a range of projects with Gladman, Johnson Mowat has been impressed with the commitment shown to delivering best value from each planning submission. This committed approach is retained from inception through to the completion of all projects by friendly and approachable Project Managers. Individual Project Managers work closely with appointed consultants and are always willing to consider expert views in order to successfully deliver projects. Although Gladman aspire to achieve planning permission at the earliest opportunity as a company, project timetables have always been realistic with allowances made for the additional timescales associated with public inquiry work.”
