Planning and Development

Planning and Development


Planning has been a core expertise of DWD since the business originated in 1984.  The UK planning regime has since become more complex and challenging over the past four decades and has expanded its reach to large infrastructure projects. In response we have engaged at each stage of planning`s evolution and have grown our teams and the people within them. We are now one the leading planning and development consultancies serving the urban development and infrastructure sectors and are known for our expertise, tenacity and commercial awareness.  We enjoy working on challenging projects, building consensus where possible to achieve the best outcomes for our clients.

We deliver assessment, strategy, project management, due diligence and added value across all the main market sectors.

We like working as part of an integrated team project team, as a close, trusted advisor to our clients.
