Tetra Tech Planning leverages our commercial skills to develop public sector strategies and policies that unlock asset potential and deliver critical projects to greatly benefit communities.
Plans and Strategy
How we shape our places and communities can make a lasting impact on people’s wellbeing. Getting this right from town planning stage is therefore critical, and this need largely informs the collaborative approach we always adopt in supporting our clients.
Our planners support public sector clients with plan making, policy, and strategic advice for residential, retail, commercial, environmental impact assessment work, and other development. We have planners across the UK with experience in Local Plan development, policy preparation, and evidence-based studies.
The experience many of our planners bring from their local authority background has been instrumental to leading policy development. Our familiarity with public and private organisations means we properly consider the priorities, governance, constraints, and opportunities faced by local planning authorities.
As town planners, we engage with emerging national trends and policy changes, but our spread of offices across the UK also allows us to share knowledge locally.
Land Assets and Projects
Operating across the public sector, we provide expert advice on development strategies and asset disposal to local authorities, government departments, health and education bodies and agencies.
Supported by our in-house multidisciplinary teams, our planners identify the most appropriate planning solutions to secure value and wider benefits from public sector property. We often work as a development manager embedded in the project team, providing clients with bespoke advice on development strategy, risk management, and coordinating specialist consultants.
Whether we are on individual sites or comprehensive masterplans for regeneration projects or new development, we have supported notable projects for clients like Homes England Defence Infrastructure Organisation, UK Department for Education, NHS England and NHS Wales, and local planning authorities.
