We initially commissioned Harries Planning Design Management to provide designs and manage the planning application for the conversion of redundant agricultural stone barns into three residential / holiday cottages.
We knew we needed to build a team that we could trust, who would work well with others and would provide expert input throughout the programme of works for us to deliver a commercially viable outcome.
Wyn and the HPDM team expertly guided us through the design, planning and then played a key role in not only contract administration but also pragmatic advice both pro-actively but also as and when we shouted for help as the questions and challenges appeared.
The result was that the programme was delivered 3 weeks ahead of schedule, the finished quality fully met our expectations and with a collaborative and structured cost management process we came in pretty much bang on budget.
Sam and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Wyn and the team and would not hesitate to recommend them to others and we will be using them again with the ongoing development.

My deepest thanks to all concerned in getting my planning application submitted and approved.
From my first phone call with my enquiry, through to completion, I cannot fault a single member of the team.
When I first called I made our deadline for submission very clear. Your team went above and beyond to ensure the tight deadline was met and even exceeded it by 3 days.
The professionalism and friendliness of everyone concerned was exceptional. I especially appreciated having phone calls and emails responded to in such a timely manner - every time without exception.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone and you're certainly top of my list of people to call should I require such services again.
Thank you all
“After obtaining the planning and building regulations for our new depot. We asked Wyn to schedule and tender the works which he did efficiently and in detail. The clarity and control the tenders and priced schedules gave me to control my construction budget and decision making was just what we needed. I look forward to seeing the building completed.”
“A very creative and customer centric firm of designers with an outstanding knowledge of the planning rules facilitating ideas and opportunities at an early stage in a building project. Outstanding project management, control and delivery skills. Look forward to working with them again.”
“Cadw ymlaen ar gwaith dosparth cyntaf. A1 Service”
Rydym wedi cyflogi Wyn a’i dîm ers nifer o flynyddoedd i weithio ar brosiectau amrywiol. Cafodd yr orsaf brofi VOSA a chyfleusterau gweithdy yn Nhreletert eu cwblhau o fewn y terfynau amser ac i safonau uchel VOSA.
Mae dros 100 o gerbydau a threlarau wedi eu lleoli ar y safle, a rhedodd y gwasanaethau ar ein safle yn barhaus ac heb unrhyw ymyrraeth yn ystod y gwaith o godi’r adeilad newydd.
Mae’r orsaf brofi wedi cael derbyniad arbennig o dda gan VOSA a’n cwsmeriaid. Gwnaethom ddibynnu’n llwyr ar sgiliau dylunio, rheoli prosiect a chyfathrebu y mae Wyn a’i dîm yn eu cynnig, er mwyn gweld ffrwyth llafur y gwaith.”
“Harries Planning Design Management provided exceptional service in refurbishing our Pembrokeshire traditional cottage. The project was substantial. It required great sensitivity to retain the character of the cottage and yet provide modern facilities for our extended family of all ages. Wyn Harries’ personal oversight of the project was meticulous, providing sensible, practical and affordable solutions to any problems encountered. He was also highly effective in relationships with the various planning authorities. Overall we are very pleased with what has been achieved and the manner in which the project was delivered”
“We would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and time on our planning application.
We would not hesitate to recommend Harries Planning Design Management to anyone embarking on a renovation/ design project as we found them to be very professional, accommodating and patient.
They listened to our ideas and were very understanding and respectful of our needs and wishes.
If ever we had any queries or concerns, however trivial, we could contact HPDM for clarification and guidance and were never made to feel a nuisance. We had regular meetings with them and had full confidence in their abilities.
We found the planning application process to be a very stress free experience as HPDM handled every aspect of it.
We felt they genuinely had our interests at heart and cared... A rarity in today's business world.”
“We have used HPDM for all our planning applications at Parc Pilliau over many years as the site has grown and developed to be a central hub for local industry. Together we have successfully delivered buildings for our tenants which include LBS Builders merchants, Wynnstay and our own container storage facility. We have found them both reliable and professional at all times.”

'Thanks to the team at Harries Planning Design Management, Great service and have designed our perfect home. Can't wait until it's finished later this year
Wyn and his team always exceed our expectations with every development opportunity we put before them.
Just for you to know, we have had very many compliments about the new building, which is a credit to all concerned.
Wyn excelled in the restoration of our listed building; designing, obtaining planning and listed building consents and managing the whole project from start to finish. We continue to use Wyn for other projects.
Having started on this project last May, it is really good to see the planning consent in writing and that there are no nasty late surprises in the conditions. Well done to Irvine, Darren and Wyn in obtaining the consent.
I was highly impressed with the degree of project management control evidenced by completion of a complex project within quoted timescales, and by the quality of construction achieved. The completed development exceeded my expectations.
