Broadgrove Planning and Development Ltd was formed in the Summer of 2018, by Richard Walters and Andy McMullan, bringing together over 35 years’ experience of successfully advising through the planning process. After working for some of the largest property consultancies in the UK (Knight Frank, Gerald Eve and GVA), Richard and Andy formed the business on the ethos of putting their clients’ needs first by providing clear, concise and commercially astute advice. Whilst based in the North West, Broadgrove advise across the United Kingdom, successfully adding value to clients’ property. Broadgrove would welcome the opportunity to work with you and demonstrate the value of commercially focussed planning advice.
Richard is a Director of Broadgrove. He has both public and private sector experience and led Planning teams in large multi-disciplinary practices. Richard’s ability to quickly understand a clients’ aspirations and devise a bespoke strategy for delivery of schemes has been successful across a range of sectors and complex large scale proposals. These range from sports stadia, redevelopment of former steel works and colliery sites to residential and commercial schemes of all sizes. The priority is always to provide commercially focussed advice to unlock value.
Outside of work Richard spends time with his wife, two children and George the boxer dog, still attempting to play football twice a week and questioning why he has renewed his Everton season tickets again this year.
Andy is a Director of Broadgrove. He has worked in both the public and private sectors and has an in depth knowledge and appreciation of how to advise and navigate clients through the complex planning process. Andy’s specialism lies in managing large scale, complex urban development proposals from the outset by devising the initial planning strategy through to successfully achieving commercially focused planning permissions.
Outside of work Andy enjoys working as a taxi driver to his kids, training for and struggling around half marathons and supporting Bolton Wanderers.
