Masterplanning

 

Helping to create successful new places where communities can put down roots and flourish, we develop imaginative and inspiring plans that capture the sense of place and respect the environment.


Strategic planning

 

Getting right to the heart of what makes places unique and special, our research into local history, people and culture gives us a robust base from which to start planning for the future.

We are great listeners and take care to learn about people’s aspirations and concerns, and then work towards making neighbourhoods, towns and cities that provide great places for people long into the future.


Town planning advisory

 

Providing clear and commercially astute advice, our specialists can support the whole planning process advising on acquisition and promotion through to plan making, planning consenting and onward delivery. 

Investment opportunities and long-term planning for growth require ever more scrutiny and demand innovative solutions.


Community + stakeholder engagement

 

Collaboration and building consensus is at the heart of what we do. We know that the best and most enduring completed projects are achieved when ideas are challenged and informed by the people we are designing for. Our many long-term relationships with clients, partners and collaborators are a testament to our belief that the best projects come from great team working.  


Urban analytics + research

 

Making the most of the opportunities and insights offered by our increasingly digital and data-rich world, we use data and research to inform our design and planning proposals. Whether this means using drones for site surveying or digital tools to speed up data analysis, there is plenty of potential for saving time and money while also increasing accuracy and saving money.

As early adopters of this approach we have been impressed by the possibilities of providing clients and collaborators with the foresight and certainty that projects have the potential to achieve their objectives.
