Planning & Expert Witness
Patrick Moss, Director, is a chartered planner and transport planner with 25 years post qualification experience, guiding schemes through all stages of the planning process including appeals and local plan examinations.

Moss Naylor Young offer a comprehensive tailored service, simplifying the process for all concerned, which enables the applicant to remain in control of the process and avoid unnecessary objections and difficulties.

Moss Naylor Young are passionate about regeneration, and see it as the ultimate objective of most projects that we get involved with.

We have been involved in comprehensive regeneration projects in east London around the Olympic site and in the Chard Regeneration Framework in Somerset; nearly all our projects are part of a wider regeneration scheme.

We understand regeneration to be about inspiring a community back into life, integrating art and music as much as commerce, sport, recreation and employment.

We apply this ethos to all that we do.

Transport Planning
Moss Naylor Young provide transport advice in support of planning applications and for clients to manage their operations and developments. Transport Statements and Travel Plans are routinely required by local planning authorities for significant developments, and we prepare these for clients in consultation with the relevant officers at each council, ensuring a smooth path towards planning consent.

Our approach is to negotiate on and deal with issues and objections before applications are determined, thus avoiding resubmission and appeal wherever possible.
