Our experience in the industry means that we approach urban design from the perspectives of design quality

A character assessment is a report that describes the distinct appearance and feel of a settlement or an area. It is an opportunity to document and describe the existing character of the areas surrounding the proposed development.

We work closely with you to identify the broad character areas that exist locally, explore sources of information from planning authorities and government bodies and complete a character assessment report, an in depth look at a particular area.
