Landscape Planning

Aerial landscape plan for porposed residential development.

We provide landscape planning expertise at all scales, rural and urban, for a diverse range of private, public and third sector clients, to guide landscape-led approaches from the very earliest stages of a project. This includes national-scale landscape research projects and methodologies, borough-wide studies, evidence bases and tools for decision-making, individual site assessments, siting studies, site promotion studies and impact assessments (stand-alone or environmental impact assessments) with strong expert witness capabilities.

We offer services in green infrastructure and nature-based solutions for nature recovery and climate resilience. At the other end of the scale, we offer townscape capabilities in view management and tall building studies. This is part of our end-to-end approach whereby we can offer integrated landscape planning solutions as a complement to, or a framework for, landscape design and management.

Our approach is always consistent, authoritative and robust and is underpinned by sound independent, objective analysis of a project’s impact and potential. Get in touch to find out how we can help you plan your next project.
