Government plans for housing announced

There’s a lot to unpack and discuss in Michael Gove’s speech outlining government plans on UK housing. Much of the speech focusses on easing the process for the conversion of commerical buildings within town and city centres, and on applying high design standards to new builds. Many of our clients already have imaginative plans for conversion of commerical and agricultural buildings, or the development of brownfield sites. Informed, expert advice at an early stage can help ensure beautiful and thoughtful design, well-executed construction and cost-effective projects that appreciate the value of the past whilst creating a sustainable future.

Throughout the planning process, we can help you take care of every detail. Working to ensure a professional, pragmatic and proportionate approach, achieve cost effective results, and rapidly identify risks. We have a strong record in carrying out work in support of planning requirements, research and community engagement.
