Commercial and Industrial

From business parks and breweries to new offices and manufacturing facilities, our team of commercial planning consultants have the right client experience to help make your project a reality. Our team provide you with support throughout the entire planning process, from viability stage right through to planning permission and start on site.

Among the areas our industrial planning consultants specialise in are:

Office parks and commercial development

We have helped to secure planning consent for new business parks, industrial estates, office buildings, retail units, major mixed-use schemes, and many other commercial projects across the UK, in both urban areas and in out-of-town locations. Our commercial planning knowledge helps developers, investors and other partners unlock site potential and create thriving business hubs and employment sites.

Warehousing and logistics hubs

We have acted as a planning partner to major developers and other blue-chip clients on modern warehousing and logistics hubs close to existing transport links. These projects have included support with Environmental Impact Assessments and other technical challenges, such as the introduction of new motorway junctions, access points and other transport matters.

Industrial developments

We provide businesses, developers, and landowners with planning advice for industrial estates, factories, engineering centres, and other industrial developments. Whether heavy industry or light manufacturing, our industrial planning consultants can provide you with a highly professional planning service that gets to the heart of the key issues and help promote the right strategy to achieve your development goals.

Roadside services

We work with some of the most recognisable businesses and brands in the UK to create new roadside services that include petrol filling stations and a wide range of ancillary services, including hotels, food and beverage, retail units, and other commercial buildings. This has us working on projects across the UK, in both urban and rural areas.

Leisure and Hospitality

From major new hotel developments to bars, pubs, restaurants, and cafes, we help developers, landlords and business owners realise their ambitions by helping to achieve planning permission for a wide range of hospitality-led projects. Our work has helped large pub companies bring unloved buildings back into use as stunning community pubs, as well as supporting hotel and dining brands to create thriving new hotels and leisure destinations.
