What is a Masterplan?


Over the last 25 years, the Spawforths' urbanism and masterplanning team have prepared high level masterplans for many thousands of acres; detailed masterplans for large residential developments; masterplans for town centres; masterplans for planning applications; masterplans for brownfield sites; viability-led masterplans and masterplans for public sector clients wishing to change the way communities look at their towns and cities.  Most involve design, engagement, technical input from a wide range of consultants and a detailed knowledge of development viability.

Many of our masterplans form just one part of the work our urbanism team undertakes and they often form the backbone of other work we undertaking such as outline or hybrid planning applications, masterplan frameworks, delivery frameworks, design codes, Section 106 agreements, development briefs or community led visions and plans.
