LDA Design is one of the UK’s leading strategic land and development consultancies with nearly four decades experience in the promotion, design and delivery of major development projects.

We provide masterplanning, planning, design and environmental consultancy services for projects at all scales including new settlements and urban extensions, residential developments,business parks,urban regeneration and renewable energy and infrastructure schemes. We lead and steer projects from site selection and planning promotion, through site appraisal, design, technical resolution, detailed design and delivery on site, and present projects at examinations, public inquiries, planning committee and public engagement events.

We are able to develop funding and delivery strategies which can optimise return on investment and demonstrate the benefits of development to land owners, investors and local communities.

Our approach combines creativity with technical rigour and commercial awareness with a focus from the outset on sustainability, viability and delivery planning. We work collaboratively with clients, other professionals and local communities, bringing together our specialist development team within an integrated working culture. Our focus is the creation of truly great places and sustainable solutions to realise our clients’goals.
