NJL Consulting (Manchester) LLP

Our Business

NJL Consulting was established in 2003 and now operates from bases in Manchester and Leeds where we service projects across the north of England and rest of UK.

We have built a reputation on quality and delivery of commercially sound solutions for development. We think strategically to assist in risk management, cost reduction, saving time and adding value.

Our team includes planning specialists and the commercial context of our advice is our differentiator. Our understanding of development, complex stakeholder management and political decision-making processes allows us to add value to our client work.

In 2017-18 we won two national awards from the RTPI for ‘Planning Permission of the Year’ and the ‘Regeneration Project of the Year’. Furthermore, we were recognised as the ‘Residential Planning Team of the Year’ by NW Insider Panel.

Since then we have continued to grow our expertise and capabilities within the residential sector and we are now actively advising on projects at various stages of the development cycle which will deliver c.9,000 residential units. This covers the full spectrum of the residential market including open market housing schemes, mixed tenure schemes, care and assisted living proposals and affordable housing developments working with developers or directly with housing associations and their development teams.


Our Approach

We appreciate that clients needs and circumstances of projects are always different and we look to find solutions to achieving the most expeditious and cost effective results.

NJL Consulting works collaboratively with the project team to respond to individual requirements of each project. Providing dedicated teams ensures that the requirements can be effectively and efficiently met and we can bring key players together to secure consensus and deliver development.

We have vast experience of assembling the best consultant team to ensure all technical matters are satisfactorily addressed as part of the planning process, thereby reducing the risk of delay and ensuring we can respond effectively and efficiently to difficult issues should they arise.
