Planning Town Planning Consultants  York Glasgow Edinburgh



The Arcus Planning Team comprises of a number of Chartered Town Planning Consultants (Full Members of the Royal Town Planning Institute – RTPI) supported by junior staff who are working towards chartered status. We work across a wide variety of types of development, including commercial, housing and infrastructure.

We believe in taking a planning-led approach to all development proposals, regardless of scale. Our Planning Team begins by assessing each development in the context of planning policy and with an understanding of how decision-makers, technical consultees and local communities may react to development proposals, in order to best support the client’s objectives. We believe this approach plays a major role in our success rate for planning consents.
