Research and Development

We undertake environmental and economic research and development for local and national government, industry bodies and individual businesses. Working on our own and with other specialist consultancies we have produced original work on catchment management, ecosystems services, Rights of Way and environmental impacts.

We have produced Supplementary and best practice guidance for local authorities and studies to guide and inform strategic thinking.

Other topics have included:

  • The design and presentation of courses for Local Planning Authorities on Local Plan agricultural policies
  • Supplementary Planning Guidance, writing Local Plan policies and best practice guidance
  • Management Planning for sensitive ecological and archaeological sites
    Analysis of Resource use (carbon, nitrogen and water) in intensive pig and poultry production
  • Ecosystems Services Assessment
  • Agricultural aspects of catchment and climate change
