  • We instructed Jeff and his team with a very open mind and realistic expectations. We knew our case would be potentially very complex, by no-means straightforward or an easy brief. The result we ended up with however far surpassed what we’d hoped for and as we embark on building our home we are truly grateful for the counsel, insight and expertise of the JCE Consultancy. The team are knowledgeable but supportive and are willing to listen – which makes all the difference – and all done with a desire to create something that will genuinely be of architectural merit to the local area. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jeff and his team in the future.

  • I have worked with Jeff and his team for many years. Through my 33 year career in estate agency with both Knight Frank and Savills and now running my own property consultancy business, I have never had a moments hesitation in recommending clients engage the services of Jeffrey Charles Emmett Planning and Architectural Consultancy. I know that they will be in safe hands and will get the best advice, service and results.

  • We have been working with JCE for the last 6 years and they have been both highly professional and effective throughout. Their fees have always been good value for money, but most importantly, they have been approachable and reliable and worked with us as a team to a positive outcome. We have been particularly impressed with the sensitive way the Practice has dealt with the District Council and would say that Jeffrey Charles Emmett is a firm that always goes out of its way to get the job done to the highest standard and on time.

  • We were introduced to JCE through Middleton Advisors, who were assisting us with the purchase of the White House. We first met up with Jeff on site when considering making an offer for this property, when we informed him of our very adventurous brief for this project. We wanted to demolish the existing dwelling and erect a replacement dwelling having a far greater floor area to meet our family and spacial requirements. Jeff was quick to point out that this was a tall order as the site was in the Green Belt and in an AONB, but was willing to take on the project offering a full Architectural and Planning service with plenty of interesting ideas of how to achieve our aims. Throughout the whole process Jeff gave us sound professional advice, and despite the very restrictive Planning Policies, he and his Team succeeded in meeting all our expectations in gaining the Planning Permission for us that he did. We would have no hesitation in recommending this Practice.

  • I have worked closely with Jeff and his team since 2003 on ‘scores’ of successful planning projects (regarding any ecology considerations – my specialism), and have found this Planning Practice to be professional, friendly and adroit with the often complex design challenges inherent between client aspirations, planning policy and wildlife laws.
