Metropolis Planning and Design

NameMetropolis Planning and Design

With the addition of Metropolis Green and together with Metropolis AS, our Architectural Studio, we can deliver metropolitan planning and design solutions drawn from a multi-disciplinary studio of planners, urban designers, architects, sustainability and renewable energy consultants.

Our planning consultancy provides the full range of planning services from basic preliminary advice, site appraisals, heritage advice, applications, appeals and Local Development Framework and inquires through to urban design, masterplanning, and the advancement of large complex schemes.

We have built a national client base of developers, operators and community clients by researching solutions for new trends especially where planning aspirations need to be translated into the built form. We have consolidated our position with strong expertise in metropolitan development control and a focus on issues which are central to the creation of more attractive and balanced urban areas.

We believe that high quality environments are best delivered through multi-disciplinary teamwork.
