Welcome to Planning for Sustainability, your partner in sustainable design practices.

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

Promoting sustainable design practices 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.

We are committed to developing design and construction strategies that integrate climate change adaptation principles. We work closely with our clients to assess their specific needs, identify vulnerabilities, and tailor solutions that enhance resilience and minimise environmental impact.

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

We even provide a risk-free RIBA Stage 0 sustainability strategy report to give your project a flying start.

Sustainable design practices require 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 eco design practices in the UK.
