Who we are

We are Roy Speer and Michael Dade, planning consultants who also write and occasionally speak on planning matters. We’re both Chartered Planning and Development Surveyors with property degrees and each of us has over 30 years’ experience in planning and development property.

We’ve written four books

  • How to Get Planning Permission
  • How to Find and Buy a Building Plot
  • How to Stop and Influence Planning Permission
  • Complete Planning Permission

Roy has also co-written a booklet, Mobile Homes in Gardens: The Planning Guide.

For information about our books see Links.

We write for monthly self-build magazines and have written for various other publications. We’ve contributed to various other books and been quoted in national newspaper articles.

We’ve spoken at many seminars, run our own land finding and planning workshops, given talks for local residents’ groups, lectured on university courses and delivered training for a land development company.
