Development & Regeneration

­

Health and Wellbeing Planning and Design

Planning was originally borne out of public health legislation and recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the health benefits of good planning and design. Our planners have been engaged in ‘health checking’ planning policies, and developing policy responses to fast food takeaways.  We also consider health as an important element of sustainability [...]

Open Space Assessments

It is widely recognised that the provision of high quality open space promotes an area as an attractive place to live, and results in a number of wider benefits. National Planning Practice Guidance states that: “Open space should be taken into account in planning for new development and considering proposals that may affect existing open space.” Local [...]

Wood Farm Housing Development

Guiding the successful development of a sensitive site. The Wood Farm site in Harrow previously comprised a farm and rubbish tip, forming an expanse of publicly inaccessible open space surrounded by Country Park. Several unsuccessful planning applications had sought to develop part of the site for residential development and new public open space. The site [...]

Guidance and EIA Review

Supporting development management through EIA review. The aim of Environmental Impact Assessment reviews is to make sure that Environmental Statements (ESs) contain sufficient robust information for consenting authorities to make informed decisions on applications. We’ve undertaken more than 100 individual reviews for local planning authorities. Our work provides an independent stamp of approval for the ES [...]

Green Belt Reviews

The need for up-to-date local plans, combined with the housing growth agenda and government reinforcement of Green Belt policy, means local authorities are actively reviewing their green belts. Our involvement in Green Belt policy development and review is unparalleled. In 1993 we undertook a Green Belt and Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) study for the London [...]

Visibility and Shadow Flicker Assessment

Demonstrating exactly how visible your development will be. Our digital designers use visibility mapping tools such as ESRI Spatial and 3D Analyst to support a range of projects, from renewable energy and infrastructure schemes to heritage setting assessments. Generating zones of theoretical visibility (ZTV) to demonstrate a development’s potential visibility is fundamental to offshore seascape [...]

GIS mapping and data analysis

Using data to make better decisions. Mapping, underpinned by geographic information systems (GIS), is an integral part of most of our work. Our maps communicate complex data clearly and effectively, are extremely accurate and feature a professional cartographic finish. Our GIS mapping and analysis specialists all have environmental backgrounds, a blend of skills that means [...]

Interactive Mapping

Your entire area on your desktop or smartphone. An interactive map allows you or your audience to explore geographic data in a meaningful and effective way. We draw on open source technology and Mappetizer software to create fully functional online maps that people really enjoy using. Using interactive features in web-based GIS maps mean that [...]

Database development

Putting data at your fingertips. A well-built database makes for better data analysis and presentation – helping you to see the bigger picture. We customise databases to your particular project requirements. We usually use Access, integrated with GIS to analyse data in the most appropriate format – either through the database itself or accessed via [...]

Photomontage and Photography

Photorealistic 3D visualisations of any development proposal you can plan for. The level of detail you require for the visual representation of your site and proposed development depends upon the purpose. We can cater for every need. Our 3D team achieves remarkable accuracy across the full range of visualisation: a simple wireframe image to indicate [...]
