Sustainability Statements are required by local planning authorities to support a planning application and to demonstrate policy compliance, particularly in light of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) presumption in favour of sustainable development.
We have an intimate knowledge of the planning process and we combine this with our technical understanding of environmental sustainability to ensure that appropriate strategies are prepared at the planning stage that balance local authority requirements with future deliverability.
We have experience in preparing complex environmental strategies for a range of scheme sizes within our impressive portfolio of projects. In particular, we have developed environmental strategies for some of the largest urban regeneration projects in the country.
Our experience of delivering sustainability commitments post-planning ensures that our advice at feasibility and planning stage focuses on client and project needs. Our investment in our staff through ongoing specialist training ensures that they remain at the forefront of environmental issues, and how these affect our clients.
