Planning Solutions Consulting has worked as visitor attraction consultants on a range of visitor attraction and visitor centre projects from aquariums through to forest recreation visitor centres.
We work with both existing attractions and new developments. With existing attractions a significant amount of our work focuses on operational reviews and working with client teams to identify new opportunities to enhance the visitor experience, increase visitor numbers, dwelltime and income. For new proposed attractions and visitor centres our work focuses on options appraisals, market assessments, feasibility studies, advising on governance and business planning.
We also carry out primary research and prepare (and implement) marketing strategies. One of our directors was responsible for marketing and launching new products at CONKERS for 13 years..
Some of the clients we have worked with include:
- Derby City Council
- Derbyshire County Council
- Forestry Commission
- Lancashire Wildlife Trust
- National Forest Company
- Natural Resources Wales
- Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust

Our clients have been appreciative of our work: “Planning Solutions Consulting Limited were contracted by Natural Resources Wales to undertake a short exercise examining the potential, opportunities and risks around running visitor centres. We found Planning Solutions Consulting to be efficient and thorough, applying their expertise in a professional manner throughout. They were able to add value for us to the contract, by suggesting new elements. The draft and final reports were of an excellent standard and addressed all aspects of our brief well. Communications throughout – and since – the contract have been great – the team were approachable, reachable and able to answer queries and address new points well.” Roz Owen, Recreation and Access Manager, Natural Resources Wales
