AWARDS / FEATURES
We pride ourselves on the close relationships we build with our clients, always striving to achieve what is best for their needs by effectively utilising the varied specialist skills within our team. We have a particular understanding of the planning system and consider ourselves to be experts in achieving the goals set out in challenging briefs, yet meeting the requirements laid out within planning and listed property guidelines.
The practice has worked on a variety of different projects and sectors (see below), including contemporary additions to listed properties and those within conservation areas. It is our passion for quality design that enables us to promote contemporary design that engages with current planning legislation.
We have been involved in seven planning appeals to date. Three have been Public Inquiries where we have acted as expert witness, including one that challenged the Environment Agency and thus changed government policy. The other four have been simpler Written Appeals. We have won all seven.
