Masterplanning and Planning Stage Services

Helping our clients achieve planning consent with a comprehensive service and intelligent advice

Most local authorities have energy and sustainability requirements as part of their Core Strategies and will set strict requirements for new and refurbished buildings. Our planning service has developed over many years of experience in building projects from feasibility stage, and we have a vast range of experience in helping clients through the planning process.

We can deliver a suite of masterplanning and planning stage services to meet your project needs. Having worked on a wide variety of building types, often in challenging or sensitive locations where specialist advice, analysis and reports are required to satisfy the planning authorities, we understand the complexities of achieving compliance at planning stage.

We work closely and collaboratively with the project team to help make sure the design addresses all aspects of relevant sustainability planning criteria, resulting in a buildable scheme which is more likely to receive consent.


Masterplanning and planning stage services include:

  • Energy and Sustainability Statements, with energy calculations conducted using SAP and SBEM, or IES modelling
  • BREEAM Communities
  • Water calculations
  • Embodied carbon assessments for planning
