Everything that Quod undertakes is centred on ‘planning’. We strongly believe that our range of expertise across social, economic and environmental issues enables us to understand all factors that should be relevant to a planning decision and, therefore, to provide more strategic, informed advice. We deliberately do not specialise in any specific type of land use or any specific parts of the country. Instead, we believe that it is stronger to understand how the planning process is likely to deal with all types of development. We recognise that there is a substantial need for all forms of development to address the country’s acute shortage of homes, the need to modernise our economy and refresh the nation’s infrastructure. But we can only promote development that we believe in.
We have a strong track record of success, which has been gained by applying consistently high standards to site appraisals, gathering robust evidence and team working to ensure that we can provide honest, commercial advice on the prospects of success, how those prospects can be improved or, if appropriate, advice not to proceed. As far as practical we aim to help clients with the difficult decisions they need to take and to work with them to implement those decisions to achieve optimum outcomes.
