We are the leading planning consultancy in the North West, founded in the city over 30 years ago.
We provide expert full service planning advice as part of an integrated service across all development sectors. Our team also has an unrivalled track record in providing expert witness services at public inquiries, Court proceedings, CPO inquiries and the Lands Tribunal.
We have been involved in some of the region’s highest profile projects such as Cain’s Brewery Village in Liverpool and Barton Renewable Energy Plant in Trafford and have won housing appeals in Cheshire West, Ribble Valley, Chorley and Preston.
At Wirral Waters our planning and design teams have been instrumental in delivering a flexible “masterplan” outline planning permission for one of the UK’s largest and most ambitious development and regeneration projects with over 1,500,000 sq m of new floorspace.
Our planning team is led by Stephen Bell and the office is a base for our design and economic planning services led by Richard Laming and Stephen Taylor.
