Who we are

Turley is a planning consultancy of breadth and distinction.

We are an acknowledged leader in the field of planning for property and the built environment.

Since we opened our first office in Manchester in 1983 we have grown to become one of the UK’s most successful planning consultancies with 11 offices across the UK. We know our towns and cities and are well connected. Our full service offer is available throughout the UK.

Turley is an employee-owned company. We have a unique culture that acts to build loyalty, strong relationships, stability and excellence. This influences how we operate at every level of our business inside and out. We have an all-round view.

As a leading practice our views are sought out and respected.  We track and influence change in policy, regulation and good practice to ensure best possible advice to clients.

We are also proud to have been given two awards that reflect our company culture:

  • Employee Ownership Association’s (EOA’s) Employee Engagement Award
  • Planning Magazine’s Best Workplace Award.
