“For eleven months I tried to make a planning application for work on my house, spending all my spare time on it, including much work which I subsequently found was not required. It was rejected by the Planning Department. I then contracted James from Alpha. He visited the site and produced superb 3D style drawings and a simplified application. A few weeks later I have received approval.”
