We provide consulting services to a wide range of private and public sector organisations, including housebuilders and commercial developers, planning consultants, architecture practices, project consortia, local government, infrastructure operators, public and private sector utility companies and regulators.  Our aim is to innovate in partnership with our clients to achieve lasting, effective and creative solutions for sustainable development.

Our primary focus is on the interactions between environment and development; we work on land use and spatial planning matters, including environmental planning, ecological surveys and impact assessment, including EIA. We endeavour to adopt a pragmatic, adaptable, commercially aware and innovative approach to enabling our clients’ objectives, while ensuring that legislative and policy requirements are fulfilled.

We draw on a wealth of technical expertise and specialist experience, which we combine with a friendly, professional and adaptive approach.  We are a Registered Practice of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management, demonstrating our commitment to delivering a quality service, high professional standards, and maintaining a position at the forefront of our profession.

Our consultants and associates are fully aware of current legislative requirements and hold relevant protected species licences as required. Any licences not held directly in-house can be resourced through our network of associates.
