Since our formation in late 2005, EDP has undertaken in excess of 1,000 projects across the UK - ranging in scale from individual properties for private clients to some of the largest urban expansions in the country.
Residential and Mixed Use Development
Together, EDP’s field survey skills and environmental planning expertise provide a strong evidence base, from which to inform robust negotiation on behalf of our clients seeking planning permission for a wide variety of development proposals. Taken in combination with our ‘environmentally led’ masterplanning service, we can optimise a site’s potential to deliver development and to achieve planning permission.
Our range of services is particularly well suited to the promotion of strategic land interests, where we work as part of a multi-disciplinary project team. We can deliver all the soft environmental project inputs from one integrated office and with one lead point of contact. This means our service is both simpler and more cost effective for our clients.
Energy and Infrastructure
EDP maintains highly experienced teams of chartered landscape architects, ecologists and cultural heritage experts, who possess proven track records in the delivery of renewable energy proposals. EDP also works with clients in the energy transmission and distribution sectors. Click here for more information.
Commercial / Leisure
We have also developed a reputation for delivering high quality business schemes, including distribution, warehousing and employment proposals, where the landscape assessment of large buildings can be especially important to unlocking a site’s potential.
EDP doesn’t just work in the rural environment. Urban development calls upon our experience with townscape assessment, street trees, cultural heritage, listed buildings and urban ecology. Our team has experience of contributing to a wide range of urban regeneration projects, including some of the most ambitious in the country such as the Bath Western Riverside project and the Creative Industries Quarter in London.
Rural Planning Services and Private Clients
Some of the most interesting and challenging projects EDP is involved with are associated with our clients’ aspirations to build or convert new homes in the countryside and diversify existing farmsteads. We possess an enviable track record of achieving planning permissions for our clients for a wide variety of applications in these circumstances.
EDP has excellent links in the education market, where we have worked on a number of schools and colleges for both the private and public sectors. EDP’s inputs to our first new secondary school won a Landscape Institute Award in the Landscape Sciences category, as our innovative use of native plants aided the achievement of ‘BREEAM Excellent’.
