Midlands & North

Our offices in the Midlands and North have acted for clients across these regions for over 30 years. We provide town planning services across all key sectors, focused on residential and commercial development and hold an enviable level of technical experience and knowledge. We apply honest and high standards to site appraisals and original and robust evidence gathering.

Our planning team guides clients through all aspects of the planning system, from the strategic promotion of sites as part of the development plan process, through project management of development schemes of every scale, through planning applications, examination and appeal. We have supported the delivery of many regional significant projects including sustainable urban extensions, major logistics parks, retail developments and infrastructure projects.

We hold an annual Residential Planning Seminar in which we share local knowledge and insight to the planning system. Click to find out more about the 2017 seminar.
