DPDS works together with a wide range of specialist environmental and technical consultants, co-ordinating and writing Environmental Statements for development projects.  We have taken proposals for major large scale developments such as town expansion schemes, industrial estates, hospital complexes and business parks from initial concept to design and impact assessment to submission of planning applications.

DPDS recognises that a balance has to be struck between environmental and development demands.  Consequently, comprehensive, and realistic mitigation measures, negotiated with Local Planning Authorities and interest groups is a key element of the environmental and planning services offered by the Company. 

Our specialist team of landscape architects, environmental specialists and planners can provide supporting information for planning applications and the preparation of Environmental Statements.
