environment & planning

At epd we are aware of the challenges a project can face to comply with national and local planning regulations. Combining technical skills with creativity, we can assess what the impact of a development has on the wider landscape ensuring a positive outcome for all.

Whether your project requires help with the planning process, needs an Landscape Appraisal to inform your application, or demands an Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment as part of a more detailed Environmental Statement, we will listen to your needs, liaise with the Local Authority and work towards a successful application. We recognise that the public sector is under strain and aim to ensure a smooth planning application process which saves time and money for everyone.

We can also provide input into Townscape Assessments, Capacity Studies and Landscape Character Assessments, and other appraisals which can help shape the future of the landscape.
