Environmental Planning Consultancy

Astell Associates have many years of working in Environmental Planning.

The consultancy evolved in 1979 and has progresses in many areas since then. Environmental planning has been carried out in the following areas.

Environmental Planning needs a comprehensive understanding of the ecology of the area, and the project proposal to be developed within that area.

As in Environmental Landscape Design, a base line study will interpret the local environment and its ecology. Areas to be protected and areas at risk will be identified and from the analysis environmental project planning can be progressed.

Classification of areas, National Parks, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Areas of Outstnding Natural Beauty (AONB), Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZ) have all to be understood, and project planning progressed by the understanding of their ecological complexity.

Astell Associates have experience in working with Local Authorities, Government Deprtments and privale Institutions, on a number of projects relating to the many and varied environmental systems found in these and other ecological areas.

  •    Woodland Planning
