Who We Work With

Zerum have been appointed as our planning consultant for multiple projects throughout our estate. We always receive professional service and guidance we can trust regarding a process which can sometimes feel opaque for the layman. Tom and Pete have become key members of the professional team helping us deliver property projects across existing and future assets.

ANDY SWIFT Production Park/Backstage Academy

Acting as Employer’s Agent on a mixed use scheme in Knowsley, Zerum have become a key consultant to the Henry Boot Developments team. Zerum act diligently and have always been proactive aiding to drive the delivery of our development. We’d have no issues recommending their appointment to others.

Henry Boot Developments

Having worked with many of the senior personnel at Zerum for several years we know how they operate. The PDM team’s experience in the residential sector is considerable, with successful collaboration of complex schemes in Sheffield, Newcastle, Liverpool and more recently Manchester. We have a great relationship with Zerum with their exibility and troubleshooting having served us well over the years.

Panacea Property Developments

Acting as Programme Manager and Employer’s Agent to help create and deliver our new higher education campus, Zerum are a highly trusted partner, helping University Academy 92 (UA92) navigate some complex design and commercial challenges. I’ve really enjoyed working closely with Zerum who have been proactive, responsive, and has always gone the extra mile to ensure the campus is exactly what we need. I’d certainly recommend Zerum to others.


Acting as Employer’s Agent on a number of mixed supported living projects in Stafford, Rochdale, Bradford and Leeds, Zerum have become a trusted consultant within the HB Villages team. Zerum help us nd the best solutions for the complex requirements of the residents living in our supported living schemes.

HB Villages Developments

We’re working with the PDM team at Zerum on a number of projects, ranging from various residential/apartment schemes within Greater Manchester, to the regeneration of a local Mosque.
Their hands on, detailed approach gives us the con dence they will leave no stone unturned, managing all stakeholders involved, with clear communication throughout. They are a pleasure to work with.


Manchester is a dynamic and complex city where a thorough understanding of the wider strategic and political landscape is required to successfully deliver projects. We have worked with a number of consultants in Manchester but Zerum have a fresh, proactive and energetic approach to making things happen and delivering successful outcomes for our mutual clients.


We’ve worked with Mike and his team at Zerum over several years on a number of projects including our larger and more complex schemes, Middlewood Locks and Thorpe Park. Each of the projects involves close collaboration with the relevant Council and the management of a large group of consultants. We feel that the team at Zerum understand the inner-workings of our business, helping them to meet our needs and our commercial objectives. We feel secure in their approach and professionalism.

PAUL KELLY Scarborough Group International

Over a number of our earlier projects I worked with a number of planning consultants, but Zerum have now been our lead consultant on more than a dozen projects over the last couple of years. Critically, I’ve found that they have a practical, commercially-sound and pragmatic approach to the process. Their advice extends beyond ‘pure planning’ offering solutions to problems and consistently delivering on the end goal, which is why they are our retained planning consultants.
