About us

Established in 2000 Foxley Tagg Planning Limited uses an innovative approach to all town planning and transport planning projects.

Our dedicated team have significant experience in the public sector, having worked for local authorities at county, district and unitary levels. This has given Foxley Tagg a unique insight into key governmental processes, procedures and protocols enabling us to use our excellent planning policy understanding to negotiate successful planning applications securing planning permission for our varied client base.
In addition to mainstream town planning application and related transport planning issues, we have recently been actively involved in the self build arena through DCLG and the National Self Build Association working to support and enable the potential that this sector of the housing market has to develop.
Our reputation for adding value in all these spheres is based on sound professional skills and an ability to work with complex projects to find a successful negotiated solution. With special expertise in project management, sustainable transport projects, transport assessments, travel plans and unlocking development potential our commercial awareness provides an important element which large and small developers will find advantageous.
Our methodology is based on a ‘hands on’ approach, taking the time to understand a clients needs and find a realistic route to secure planning permission and hence deliver the aesthetic outcome that is desired.
Equally however we continue to recognise the economic realities and to our commercial clients offer alternative views where appropriate to enable our clients to achieve the best return for their investment.
