We are one of the largest planning consultancies serving both West and East Midlands.

We are active in all key development sectors, with a focus on residential development, business space, retail, higher education, sport and renewable energy.

We have helped deliver significant projects including Fort Dunlop, Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Resorts World Birmingham at the NEC, and many major logistics developments across the Midlands.

We helped the University of Warwick achieve its ‘Vision 2015’ through our strategic cross-boundary outline planning permission for 170,000 sq m of new accommodation in the Green Belt. A scheme determined locally and not called-in.

Our Birmingham team is led by Mike Best, and is also home to our Sustainability team.

Our local connections include:

  • Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce
  • GBSLEP Planning Sub-Group
  • Birmingham Leaders/Birmingham Future
  • Forum for Built Environment
  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Central England.
