At David Lock Associates we give candid and impartial advice without fear or favour, and seek to influence decision-makers to share our vision of bold new futures. Our advice is always considered, consistent and defensible so that we represent clients with confidence at planning panels, tribunals and in the courts. Our design skills enable us to identify creative solutions to disputes. As thought leaders in town planning and urban design, we relish the opportunity to present innovative ideas that will shape the future of our towns and cities.
Our team has extensive experience in providing advice on the appropriateness of development proposals for both developers and planning authorities. This includes particular expertise in the delivery of expert evidence at planning tribunals and panels. Our Urban Designers are skilled in identifying an appropriate future character for areas where no specific built form policy exists.
We seek to strike a balance between the imperatives for more compact development on the one hand, and respect for valued character and residential amenity on the other. Our advice has been instrumental in establishing the future form of a number of areas undergoing change.
