Paul White
Consultant, Sustainability


Good design lifts the spirit.  It is essential to the creation of sustainable, successful places of lasting worth. 

Achieving well-designed development is a critical part of our planning perspective. We want to be proud of our places

Our team of designers combines creativity with technical know-how to generate imaginative and compelling designs.

Our work captures the opportunity inherent in each new development to create vibrant new places that are valued and valuable.

We create:

  • urban design strategies
  • development frameworks
  • masterplans
  • design statements, guidance and codes
  • enhancement schemes
  • strong drawn and document graphics.

The team’s capacity and national reach is blended with a strong local knowledge and a responsive approach. We understand local characteristics and conditions to shape development that sits comfortably in its context – minimising risk, maximising distinctiveness.

We work with our colleagues, clients and communities to help deliver sustainable new places,  places for life.

At Fleet Marston, Aylesbury we produced a compelling strategic masterplan for new mixed use, well connected, neighbourhoods set within green infrastructure and including 2750 new homes. An appeal decision is awaited.
