Tom worked for me for 5 years, before leaving to set up his own business. I have since watched in admiration as Tom has established one of the leading planning consultancy businesses in the province. His success though does not surprise me given his talent as a planner, his leadership capabilities and his strong sense of purpose. These attributes are evident in TSA - excellent planning skills, passion for their work, a sense of integrity and an unwavering commitment to their clients. This is a business that is a credit to the planning profession.

TSA has always been an exceptional planning advisor to Bywater in the Belfast market. More recently, TSA has been advising Bywater on a very prominent site in central Belfast. TSA have approached the complications with a considered and careful approach, both during their advice to us as well as their sensitive approach to the key stakeholders. TSA's advisory service and public engagement was very diligently prepared, carefully considered and clearly communicated.

In over 100 successful planning applications we have worked on together, TSA’s professionalism in its marshalling of the project team and its insights and knowledge of Planning process and law, has been exemplary. With many variable factors such as changes of approach by the client, statutory consultees not hitting deadlines or planning officials’ responses not meeting expectations, TSA is always the constant - in terms of its consistency and its ability to find solutions - helping to bring really positive change to communities and the built environment in NI. TSA is always adding value and is often fearless in guiding its clients to a realistic and positive outcome, they are also pleasure to work with.
