The Practice’s approach is built upon initial dialogue and shared understanding in order to blend ambition with policy.

studio:planA, offers a comprehensive planning service, based on a proactive, energetic approach, grounded in effective communication. This ensures that information is marshalled to support the decision-making process, so that client ambition is fused with that expressed by policy.

The Practice’s approach is built upon initial dialogue and shared understanding in order to blend ambitions. Proposals are based on an early yet informal engagement with those charged with responsibility for granting consent, and on-going discussion which promotes an intelligent solution responsive to the planning context.

From the outset, an awareness of any potential restrictions which may influence design development are identified. This approach aims to minimise any risk of emerging proposals being non-compliant with the planning authority’s expectation, which serves to guard against abortive design work and manages any potential programme slippage.
