It is widely acknowledgedthat a better approach isneeded to the preparationof LDF documents. Over a quarter of allCore Strategies haveeither been withdrawn orjudged unsound by thePlanning Inspectorate.The UrbanValueapproach developed bySpace Syntax plugs thegaps in knowledge andengagement that thePlanning Inspectoratehas highlighted.
How do we meet your needs?
With the help of our unique and powerful
toolkit for Local SpatialPlanning, we will coach you on howto understand the essential
of your area – the factorsthat make it truly unique – and help youto make an
informed, convincing,and effective response

toolkit focuses on thefundamental way that spatial layoutsin
uence social, economic andenvironmental outcomes.
 helps create planning documents that trulyaccount for the likely
impact of spatialplanning policy
on issues including landvalues, rental incomes, retail performance,pedestrian and cyclist movement,social performance and crime patterns.These outcomes represent direct andindirect
returns on public and privateinvestment
