“As Principal Consultant for Countryside Management to Place Services and Essex County Council I have engaged Whirledge & Nott on numerous instructions over the years.  These instructions range from negotiating on landlord and tenant issues through to valuation advice, disposals and management agreements.  Latterly Place Services have been pleased to support Whirledge & Nott to set up the UK Habitat Bank which connects developers, landowners and planning authorities and helps them move towards no net loss of biodiversity in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework.  I value Whirledge & Nott’s extensive expertise and their appreciation of the requirements of a statutory authority and look forward to working with them in the future.”

“Ingrebourne Valley is one of the leading land reclamation and restoration companies in the south-east of England.  We need the very best advice when we are acquiring sites, negotiating mineral rights and restoring contaminated land.  We have used Whirledge & Nott to acquire numerous sites over the last few years and they also manage our commercial and residential portfolios including dealing with rent collection, lease negotiations and lettings.  It is important to us to deal with an organisation that has such a range of experience and expertise in these varied disciplines and it is comforting to know that we can rely on their quality and integrity.”

Andy Clark (Director) Ingrebourne Valley

“With over 12,000 acres across three counties, we need a lot of property advice.  Whirledge & Nott understand our objectives and always give us high quality advice.  We use them regularly for planning, development and diversification advice as well as large valuations.  Their breadth of expertise allows us to use them as a one-stop shop and their local knowledge is second to none.”
