Urban Edge provide an extremely professional, knowledgeable and good value service, tailored to fit to our often challenging timeframes. Reporting is always detailed and clear on what are complex technical areas, whilst advice is always quick and pragmatic. I would have no hesitation in recommending UECC’s services to anyone.

    Urban Edge, within a very short timescale, provided a thorough and accurate SEA for our Neighbourhood Plan. Over half the Parish lies within the Chichester Harbour AONB with its protected areas for nature conservation, some being of international significance. We also have nearly 40 Listed buildings, several historic settlements, including a Conservation Area, and many other constraints. The work done by Urban Edge was invaluable in helping select sites for the 350 required new homes (12% increase parish wide) and went unchallenged. They were easy to work with and we would not hesitate to have them again.
