Cassidy + Ashton is committed to providing high quality services in the fields of town planning and environmental consultancy. To achieve this, the practice seeks to promote close links with its clients, enabling an effective and efficient working relationship to be created. With this approach at the core of the client-consultant relationship, the practice is able to utilise its combined experience of over 50 years in private practice to provide a high-quality and professional service.
A number of basic values underpin our approach to consultancy:
Detailed Understanding of the Issues
Many planning and environmental matters rely on a detailed understanding of the issues in order to be able to achieve solutions. We pride ourselves in preparing fully and taking time to understand the key concerns so we can provide detailed and reliable professional advice.
Co-operation and Negotiation
The planning system relies on co-operation and negotiation between all parties involved. Our general approach is to work constructively with decision-making authorities rather than adopt a confrontational style. However, we will always defend our client's position in the face of unreasonable demands.
The UK Planning System operates within some of the most restrictive and extensive environmental designations and protection in Europe. At Cassidy + Ashton, our knowledge does not just extend to the planning system. We have extensive experience and understanding of the range of wider environmental issues, which we also employ in promoting sustainable development.
