About Us

Your development project is unique and individual, and we believe that it deserves a resource and waste consultancy that is as innovative as your designs. KaNect offers a proactive approach based on our understanding of the intricacies of the planning system and the relationships our team have built during their years in the industry.

Founded by two extremely talented and knowledgeable resource and waste management advisors, KaNect provides the expertise you look for from global agencies whilst using a hands-on approach gleaned from years of work in the development and regeneration sector.

Our personalised approach means that you only pay for the services and documents you need, created and designed by highly experienced professionals who know and understand your project’s needs. We enjoy working on and managing projects within large and complex design teams, making sure that each aspect of every project receives a resource and waste solution that fits perfectly into the jigsaw.

Our Values

KaNect believes in connecting clients and communities to a sustainable future. To achieve this, we strive to include our company values in every project that we advise on.


We believe that every client and project deserves specific and tailored advice. One size most definitely doesn’t fit all, which is why we use our knowledge of the intricacies of planning to provide our clients with a consultancy service that is as unique as their project.

Proactive Partnerships

We’ll be by your side on every project, from concept to execution, providing resource and waste management advice at every step of the process. We pride ourselves in creating long-standing relationships built on a sterling reputation.


In planning, things rarely go to plan, so we operate to the working hours of our clients, providing the flexibility and assurance they need to get the job done.


We understand that during the planning process, our clients may need documents and edits to proposals within a short time window. That’s why we work hard to provide a quick turnaround on all documentation.


Our expert team has collaborated with businesses ranging from small enterprises to multinational corporations, providing comprehensive waste management solutions tailored to their specific needs.
