Who are GraceMachin?

Nick Grace and George Machin are Chartered Planning Consultants with almost 40-year's professional work experience between them. This has been gained predominantly in the private sector. Working as colleagues GraceMachin Planning & Property was set up in the middle of 2012 and operates from the heart of Nottingham in the City’s Lace Market and Creative Quarter.

Across the East Midlands, and sometimes further afield in England and Wales, work undertaken ranges from small scale projects – single one off homes (including those of outstanding design and innovation) to large scale strategic promotion of land through the Local Plan process.

"As a business we aim to deliver planning consents as quickly and efficiently as possible within what is an increasingly complex planning system."

Both partners regularly appear at Local Plan Hearing Sessions and regularly deal with a wide range of planning appeals, including informal hearings and Public Inquiries.

Planning Policy both nationally and locally is constantly evolving and knowing what is happening in the local market is vital to securing planning success.
