    I had planned has been delayed....

    I've got potential investors and clients that have seen and are waiting to see the website and because of this incident everything I had planned has been delayed....

    Is the last bold phrase grammatical or makes sense?

    See above in red. The bold part is OK although I don't understand the link between the potential investors and clients and the delay. You haven't specified what the "incident" actually is. That's why I took it out and just left "because of this" - "this" being "the fact that some people have seen the website and some haven't". If that's not what you meant, please explain what you did mean and I'll have another to.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, it makes sense and is grammatically correct!

    I didn't make any corrections to the bold part at the end of your sentence so that's irrelevant. PowerEnglish was answering the exact question you asked, which referred only to the bold part at the end.

    Because the potential/investors want to see the finished website before they make a decision on the investment. The incident is the web designer has been lagging on completing the website.

    There are potential investors and clients who are keen to see the finished website. Because of the delay in completing the website, I have had to delay everything I had planned.

    emsr2d2,

    I am trying to improve my English writing and speech. What would you say is the best way to do improve in those two areas? Reading books and practice writing essays?
