Office closed during Coronavirus crisis

We are open for phone calls, video conferencing and emails, but sadly our offices are closed.

We feel very fortunate that we can work from home, we have all the systems in place to carry on with “business as usual”. Phone numbers remain unchanged and will be maned as usual.

Our priority is to keep our team and their family and friends safe and our thoughts are with everyone in the health service, teachers, shops etc that do not have home working as an option right now.

During this Coronavirus crisis, we would like to emphasise what we can achieve, in maintaining a full service to our clients during this difficult time. This is how we do it:

  • Access to resources – National Guidance, Local Plans, Evidence Studies and Planning History are all available on-line. This allows us to fully appraise current strategies as well as advise clients on future opportunities.
  • Site visits – Google Earth has been an invaluable tool for understanding a site and its context for a number of years. Whilst it will never replace benefit of a traditional site visit, it allows us to get an idea of a site and its surroundings.
  • Video Conferencing – we routinely host video conferences with clients and fellow professionals on projects. Ideas can be shared, just as before.

One of the things we can do is plan for a post-lockdown future. By using the above, we remain open and would actively encourage our clients and contacts to discuss new opportunities, so that we are all ready to make the post of a post-lockdown world. As we’ve seen with Planning for the Future, the Government has some big aspirations for the planning system and we want to make sure that you don’t miss out on the opportunities they will generate.

Please take care everyone, let’s keep talking and keep Britain great.
