Sheffield-based estate agents Redbrik and Sheffield and London-based consultancy Urbana Town Planning have partnered up to provide a full in-house service to developers and landowners.

Redbrik’s land and new homes division will refer developers to Urbana for planning consultancy services, while Urbana will recommend that their clients speak to the Redbrik land and new homes team for advice on sales and marketing.

Urbana has a six-strong planning team.

Land and new homes manager, Jen Beal, said: “We are seeing more and more examples of landowners who have applied for the wrong type of planning permission on a site or have schemes drawn up without considering the huge implications of planning.

“By starting the conversation early and involving planning experts such as Urbana, we are confident that we can help developers get the best possible start.”

Urbana founder and managing director, Adam Murray, added: “We’ve already received initial enquiries from local developers who are particularly interested in the wide-range of support we can provide as a result of this partnership.”
