We undertake all types of application on your behalf, from householder extensions to proposed new builds, change of use of premises and Certificates of Lawful Use/Development etc.
We offer an appraisal service as a ‘stand alone’ instruction which can be undertaken from as little as £995.00 with no obligation to move forward should you not wish to do so. With an excellent track record of successfully negotiating planning consents on behalf of our Clients, we will only ever advise to move forward should our findings be supportive of your proposals.
The appeal system can be a very complex area of planning and planning law. Should you have received a refusal of planning permission, we are able to appraise the original application and supporting documents/the Local Authority Decision Notice in order to advise as to the best corse of action.
We are also able to assist you with all types of enforcement action which may have been taken against you, including Planning Contravention Notices. It is important to act fast. Many Clients have attempted to undergo the process themselves and at the last minute, realised they needed assistance.
Unlike many other professional Practices, we offer two ways in which to pay for the services you require.
The first is a Pay As you Go Scheme (PAYGS), which entails work charged on an hourly basis and billed either monthly or following a particular stage of work, with invoices raised to be paid within 14 days following issue.
The second is our Advance Payment Scheme (APS). Such is billed on a discounted hourly rate and the median of your quoted hours billed in advance. This ensures that you have a set amount of hours worth of work and helps you budget accordingly.

Serviam acted for our company when we got into difficulty with a complexed planning application. Alexis and his team dealt with the case and council efficiently and effectively. We are thankful to Serviam for finding solutions to our problems by engaging in the manner they did with the Council. They were very organised and prompt in all our dealings with them which I feel is a much neglected quality amongst modern professional firms. Paul Taylor, Managing Director of The Elms (St. Helens) LTD.
This is the first time I have used a planning consultant; fortunately Alexis was recommended to me. He has had to answer many questions from me and has so far been the reassuring , knowledgeable professional I need to help me with my business. He has built a great business relationship on the back of being responsive and communicative – with excellent service! Faith Staniforth – Director – Dovestone Property Ltd
“After months of chasing various departments regarding planning and getting no where I enlisted the help of Alexis and Serviam planning and within days I had answers. Not only that, but I was able to move forward with my project due to their assistance. I would heartily recommend them for their skills, knowledge and excellent assistance throughout”. Llewelyn Thomas-Wood, Managing Director of Buddah Beauty Company.
Serviam planning assisted my organization with licensing premises for a change of use license to a D1 church use on Oldham road. I am glad to say that the job was professionally handled and we were completely satisfied with the qualities of services rendered with good empathic human touches. Serviam planning secured the license after appealing the initial refusal. I will recommend this organization to whosoever may need their services without hesitation in future Dr. Ayodele Arewa, The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries
With regard to providing a reference for Mr Alexis Anderson-Jones, we have worked alongside Alexis for the past couple of years on some interesting and sometimes quite complex planning regulated applications and regularisation applications. We generally provide the architectural support and Alexis, who fronts the application and deals with the client direct on planning matters, will generally structure the application in the best format to ensure that the planning regulations and general policies are being adhered too. His work is exemplary and he is very precise in his execution of the varied and complex planning tasks involved. He is very well versed in the planning regulations and has strong knowledge of the general planning system with his string background in that similar field to the local authority planning officers. Project coordination with the design team is always on point so that the design team are working together to ensure the best outcome for the client. Not only is he a pleasure to work with we find that he has a unique drive and steely determination to ensure that submitted applications have been prepared with the best possible chance of obtaining approval, he is able to combat any unusual planning officer opinions and offer valued solutions to some planning issues that may arise during the course of the application phase. Frank James Smith, Consultant Director, James Campbell Associates.
