NameDavid Lock Associates Ltd

David Lock Associates is an independent town planning, urban design and master planning consultancy based in Milton Keynes. We have over 25 years’ experience in the development industry.

We advise landowners and developers in planning and securing consent for new homes, jobs, transport infrastructure, retail and education. We advise business and civic leaders on city visioning; we work with local authorities and stakeholders on regeneration master plans and growth scenarios; and we help developers and investors bring sites to market.

Our successes include some of the UK’s largest new settlements and urban extensions. We pride ourselves on the high quality of our work and staying at the forefront of best practice.

Skilled practitioners and advocates, our team includes people with backgrounds in planning, architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, surveying, transport, civil engineering, graphic design, GIS and AutoCAD. We have a trusted, multi-disciplined network of fellow consultants, particularly through our ‘Collaborate’ partnership and our sister companies Integrated Transport Planning, DLA Architects Practice, DLA Australia and DLA Nordic.
