It now forms the Planning Division of the Company with eight planning consultants, of which six are full members of the Royal Town Planning Institute. All have extensive public and private sector experience.

Many of our clients and projects are located in the south-east, midlands and London reflecting our history and the strong links formed with Aitchison Raffety and the wide range of services the Group provides.
