Scotland Edinburgh

We have two offices, on George Street in Edinburgh and in St Vincent Street in Glasgow together offering one of the most experienced planning consultancy teams in Scotland.

We are well placed to deal with Scotland’s changing planning agenda, through our extensive links with professional institutions, industry, the Scottish Government and local government. Our work facilitates all development sectors including retail, leisure, residential, energy and business space.

We have been involved in many high profile projects including the West Edinburgh SDA; masterplan expansion of Pollok Town Centre in Glasgow and Blindwells New Settlement in East Lothian.

At South Bridge/Cowgate, Edinburgh, within the World Heritage Site, our planning and heritage teams secure planning permission for a contemporary 270 bed hotel.

Our business is led by Colin Smith and Claire Semple with supporting teams in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
