Planning for Sustainability

For developers who want to retain control over direction, design and cost of their development projects.

Promoting sustainable design is a core objective of the planning system. The planning requirements with regards to sustainable development can therefore be elaborate and demanding. We help you to ensure that your building design will meet the requirements and is easy to implement and remains cost-effective.

From the conceptualization phase to project completion, we prioritise sustainable practices that consider the unique characteristics of each site and the anticipated climate change adaptation that we need to bring into the building process. Our approach encompasses a wide range of strategies, such as efficient use of resources, incorporation of renewable energy sources, implementation of green infrastructure, and integration of nature-based solutions.

Sustainable design requires consideration of many interacting areas: water and energy efficiency, sustainable sourcing of materials, climate change adaptation (including avoidance of overheating in buildings), biodiversity, sustainable urban drainage systems, noise, and air quality.

The complex interactions need a systematic and integrated approach. Planning for Sustainability is one of very few dedicated organisations that is able to deliver a truly integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to planning and sustainable design in the UK.
