HDA has extensive experience of Landscape Planning, informed by our experience as Expert Witnesses, and through providing landscape advice to South Oxfordshire District Council. We maintain an up-to-date working knowledge of the planning system, including national planning guidance and relevant case law originating through appeal decisions. We have successfully promoted sites through the planning system, both for private developers and for local authorities – supporting their Local Plan through the production of evidence base studies.
HDA is a Landscape Institute registered practice and all our senior Landscape Architects are Chartered members of the Landscape Institute (CMLI). We offer bespoke design solutions, providing advice from project inception to completion. We have successfully helped clients promote land for development through site analysis and initial concept design, and are often retained to produce designs for planning and construction.
