We are one of the largest planning consultancy teams in the region, covering Yorkshire and the North East.

We have a strong track record in retail and residential development, commercial property, and are particularly active in logistics and renewable energy.

We have helped deliver major projects including the Central Square office scheme in Leeds City Centre and Haigh Hall Solar Farm in south Leeds, as well as Sheffield United’s ground redevelopment.  We are working on the Vickers Tank Factory in Leeds; South Shields ‘365’ Town Centre regeneration; and Thorpe Marsh Power’s gas pipeline NSIP project near Doncaster.

At Gildersome we are working on a scheme to deliver 305,000 sq m of employment space. 

Our office is led by John Brooks, and is also the base for our EIA service led by Matthew Sheppard.
