Many thanks to Berwyn Owen for his practical help and kind support. Berwyn helped us to gain planning permission for the conversion of a disused chapel into a 7-bed self catering holiday accommodation. Berwyn kept his cool and handled the application with skill in the face of determined local opposition. He helped find solutions to all the objections raised by the opposition leading to a successful outcome. Owen Devenport has been recommended to us and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others. 

When we looked into purchase a farmhouse and outbuildings to convert to holiday lets we looked to find a local firm of planning consultants to advise us. Owen Devenport helped us through the maze of planning issues to a satisfactory conclusion. We would recommend them to anyone. Ron and Jen Horan of Rivercatcher Holiday Cottages, Llandrillo after their successful application to develop a luxury holiday development.

I am delighted that you were successful in the appeal process for 'The Old Toll House' Llanystymdwy. Clearly this was more difficult to achieve a successful outcome due to the fact that the property in question is a Grade 2 Listed Building.

You dealt with this matter in a professional manner for which I would thank you and I would always be happy to personally recommend your firm should the need arise so feel free to give out my contact details as appropriate! Successful appeal for a large extension dealt with by Informal Hearing.

Our application was particularly challenging - we wanted to obtain consent for the erection of 21 log cabins for holiday use on a site near an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The planners were clearly set against approving it from the start, however, we believed in the project and Berwyn advised us that despite the opposition, there were good grounds for approval.

Berwyn has local knowledge that is second to none both in terms of other relevant developments on the island and the planning process. He helped us devise a plan that balanced our commercial objectives whilst trying to maximise our chance of approval. It was a long process but we finally got there in the end and Berwyn and Jamie's support and commitment never faltered.


Owen Devenport helped us to get planning permission we needed where other companies failed. Jamie and Berwyn were always on hand with advice and information when required. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone and if we ever needed assistance in the future I would not consider using any other company.

Securing a Certificate of Lawful Use and planning permission for expanding the business.

"Put quite simply you are streets ahead of the rest and I certainly went through a few planning consultants before landing at your door, thanks very much. Today I opened my formal approval certificate to build our new property; a manager's dwelling in the heart of the rural community, which will help us to grow and develop our business. Having previously been turned down using other planning consultants we went to see Berwyn at Owen Devenport.

Without their specialist advice, through attention to detail and total understanding of our unique case, I would not be holding in my hand permission to build. I have no reservations about recommending Owen Devenport, I am so impressed by what they have achieved, should any prospective clients wish to speak to a previous customer, just get in touch with me..."
