We are at the forefront of market analysis and we track government policy and legislation so we can give fresh insight to our clients. Our Think Tank is a catalyst for industry-leading thinking on planning and development.
Town planning was a very new discipline when Nathaniel Lichfield set the company up in 1962. He was a pioneering economist and town planner, and the business was soon advising government, local authorities, and private clients on some of the country’s most significant projects - from new towns and airports, to the country’s first regional shopping centre, and the world’s most famous stadium.
These days, our planning and development specialists offer insight, innovative thinking and expert advice to create great places for future generations.
No-one is better at coming up with new ideas, and new ways to plan and manage the country’s biggest development projects. We’re always looking for a better way – for every client, and for every project. It’s what we do. And what makes us stand out.
With over two hundred people operating from nine offices across the UK, we combine local contacts with the know-how to deal with every kind of project, large or small.
