About Us

CarneySweeney's people have over 100 years of combined experience in providing trusted advice to the London, Birmingham and Cardiff Property Community.

We offer integrated planning services for residential and commercial development projects.


At CarneySweeney we are all working effectively at home, and have access to all our files, processes, software as normal. We have been successfully using telephone conference and video conference facilities already – either our own via Zoom Pro – or other parties through their invitations – and can continue to do so.

We have business resilience processes in place, including in terms of staff sickness, and so we do not envisage any disruption to our work on projects.       

We are also liaising with local authority planning teams in terms of their business continuity planning to provide reassurance to our clients at these uncertain times

CarneySweeney are trusted planning advisors that can offer insight and knowledge of all areas of town planning issues.  We also advise on matters of land promotion and master planning; social-economic assessments; and, environmental impacts.
