What we do

IM adds value to our clients by being the number one agency for understanding the intricacies of the Development Consent Order (DCO) process. Achieved through our work to date led by our Founder Dominic O’Donnell and now complemented by our MD, Frances Fernandes, who joins us after a decade with the Planning Inspectorate as Lead Examining Inspector assessing the largest and most complex DCOs in recent years.

IM works as trusted advisers with promoters involved in the DCO process. We find innovative solutions and help deliver the vital infrastructure projects that will shape our future. Our vision is to play a defining role in transformational projects that change the way we live, move around and connect with each other.

We are a nimble and highly collaborative team, always seeking to celebrate and promote each other’s work. This approach means we have a cohesive group who look out for one another and enjoy working together. It also ensures strong value adds for our clients, stakeholders and our own development
