A specialist planning and environmental consultancy


Founded by Gary Halman and Richard Woodford in 2001, HOW grew to be one of the leading private planning practices in the North. In 2018 we saw the potential to improve and widen the services we could offer our clients, and following GVA’s acquisition of HOW Planning, created GVA HOW Planning which now sits as part of GVA’s national planning, development and regeneration platform.

Operating as part of GVA’s wider planning and development offer, GVA HOW Planning provides access to the very best planning, environmental and development skills, experience and talent in the North of the country. We understand not just policy, practice and the legislation but also the politics and other, often unseen, factors that can influence decision making.

We believe our spaces shape us. The places in which we work, live and play have the power to make us all healthier and happier. Quite simply, our surroundings should bring out the best in us. Whether it is vision to help create new places, or intelligence to maximise existing spaces, however you interact with real estate, we’re here to get you to a good place. Our places build people.

 

We’re experts in a wide variety
of property sectors:

  • Mixed Use & Commercial
  • Leisure
  • Office, Distribution, Industrial & Business Parks
  • Residential
  • Infrastructure & Energy
  • Listed Buildings & Conservation
  • Retail
