Some areas that we work in suffer from little or no interest from the private sector and development industry due to a wide range of environmental, locational, connectivity or social issues.  Communities may be struggling to regenerate or re-energise themselves and consequently be failing to attract political or funding support.  

Over the last two decades we have worked for and with many hundreds of communities, major land owners and public sector bodies to help change perceptions, design and construct new infrastructure and attract investors.  The process usually starts with a "big idea" that is then explored and developed in partnership with key stakeholders.  This is not just blue sky thinking for the sake of it - we have a proven track record of conceiving and helping deliver major projects throughout the north of England worth many hundreds of millions of pounds.

Three of our different approaches to visioning and transformation are set out below...
