WHAT THEY SAY

 

Davidson Chalmers - Andy Drane
I have worked with Smithy House Associates for several years, particularly but not exclusively in connection with renewable energy, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to clients who need clear strategic advice and guidance on working constructively with the planning system across the UK.

The Energy Workshop - Dan Grierson
During my time with The Energy Workshop and previously with a major UK wind energy developer I have found Smithy House Associates to be uniquely qualified to deliver community and political support for wind energy schemes.
Smithy House Associates effectively engage with both communities and politicians at all levels, developing positive relationships with parish councils, local elected members, MPs and other decision makers.
I have worked with them to deliver positive planning outcomes at the local level for a range of wind energy schemes throughout the UK including areas such as North Yorkshire and Northumberland.
They work closely and effectively with their clients with regard to the promotion of projects and the associated benefits, and the effective rebuttal of the often erroneous and alarmist claims of opponents.
It is always a pleasure to work with such an effective, approachable and committed team, and we shall continue to do so in the future.

Novera Energy - David Taylor
We retained the services of the experienced team at Smithy House Associates on our Wind Farm project in the Scottish Borders. We found that they were much more than just another public relations organisation; they used their knowledge and skills to design a campaign which communicated our message accurately and appropriately to the local community. Their commitment to our project, their personalities and their diligence contributed significantly to the success of our planning application

Miller Developments Ltd - Bruce J Lindsay
I have had the pleasure of working with Smithy House Associates on a complex planning issue and found them pro-active, professional and hard working. They brought experience and dedication to the job and were always seeking solutions to problems. I would be pleased to work with them again on similar cases where the public needed to be informed and persuaded to an argument.
