I am in the process of looking at what planning permission in my area has been granted recently and writing a letter of introduction about my business to them about potential work I could do for them. Who should I address the letter to the architect or the person who wants the works carrying out as I know sometimes the architect will do all the work rather than the client.

Thankyou for not answering the question.

Just out of interest all the information has been obtained via a public list available to anyone and not a mailing list which I believe is different.

Bit harsh there fella !:2guns:

I can understand doing that to the multi nationals who should know about the MPS , but to do it to the one band operators trying to just put food on the table who would have never of heard of it is another thing I reckon !:santa3:


Just to make it clear , we never have or never will cold call !

MPS/TPS only monitor firms who are registered in their scheme, ie bulk mail companies, when you sign up with them, the bulk mailers will stop sending you mailouts/cold calls, it doesnt apply to local one off mailings, so reporting them would be pointless.

Answering the original post. I would address the home owner, all the jobs I get involved with that require planning consent seem to be carried out by the owner, there's no architect involved. Or they do the drawing but have no further involvement. Anyway its the home owner paying the bills.
