Who are Sorrell Associates?
Sorrell Associates is a specialist town planning and development consultancy established by Jim Sorrell to provide independent professional planning advice based on his experience of over twenty years in a diverse range of development projects. The company is based in Edinburgh, with coverage throughout Scotland and across the UK.

Why is planning advice needed?
Involvement in the planning system can be complicated, time consuming and potentially costly if not carried out correctly. There continues to be a host of policy changes at both national and local levels with an increasingly wide range of planning regulations and environmental controls.  This means expert planning advice is more important than ever.

What do we do?
We help clients achieve their development ambitions by navigating through the complexities of the planning process. We specialise in all aspects of planning applications, planning appeals and development plans, and provide advice on projects ranging from strategic land allocations to detailed aspects of planning control.  

Our trademark is in providing clear, no-nonsense advice geared to clients’ specific property or planning requirements. We offer a personal service with an eye for detail, and the flexibility to ensure value for money,  without the overhead costs of larger practices.
