Joined up planning

We apply our planning experience throughout a project life-cycle to a diverse portfolio of work that includes development schemes, place making and policy formulation. Our development planning and design team is frequently embedded within project and design teams, allowing us to be deeply involved in achieving the best outcomes for the proposal.

Our planning team includes professionally qualified planners with ‘coal-face’ experience in the public and central government sectors. Working closely with our EIA and social value teams, it delivers a full range of town planning work, comprising:

  • Feasibility Study
  • Development Strategy
  • Strategies and Frameworks
  • Regeneration
  • Planning Applications
  • Affordable Housing and Viability
  • Law and Policy
  • Heritage Planning
  • Stakeholder Management
  • S016 and Infrastructure Levies

In delivering these services, we bring to bear out knowledge of the design process and its relevance to planning policy along with such specific areas as community planning and masterplanning.

Our approach to Development Planning and Design

Our approach differs from one scheme to another, but in every case can draw on our track record of success over the years. This means that we can ensure that competing priorities, cross-cutting issues, and the application of sustainable design are considered appropriate throughout a project.
