Our knowledge and expertise in urban design and master planning ensures development proposals are viable, deliverable, attract support and create great places. We prepare master plans at all scales and levels of detail, from concept to detailed design.

 

Visioning

Visioning is a key tool in establishing credible concepts for development and ‘place making’. We balance creativity with pragmatism to ensure that our visioning work is well pitched and capable of translation into deliverable plans. Our graphic design service ensures that our visioning work is presented to an exceptional standard.

Master planning

Our reputation as one of the leading master planning consultancies in the UK is derived from our consistent application of design excellence, a desire to make great places for people to live and work, and an in-depth knowledge of the development industry. Our master plans translate into robust parameter plans for planning application purposes.

Development framework plans

Flexible and adaptable framework plans to promote and guide change and decision making over a longer period of time pave the way for successful development or redevelopment, particularly where land ownership is fragmented. Our framework plans often underpin statutory policy documents.
