Local plan, Master Planning and Advice


Supporting local authorities, and developers in land allocations and site planning.

SCP supports land developers in planning how to layout and service a site to ensure the best return for the investment and outcomes from the developments by considering transport and infrastructure requirements at an early stage.

A well-developed master plan allows developers to capitalise on the site opportunities and at the same time minimise and mitigate for risks during both the planning and construction phases, SCP are here to help ensuring clients achieve the best value scheme.


SCP is highly experienced at site master-planning and transportation site design, regularly liaising with town planners, architects, landscape architects, and developers to ensure that both non-motorised transport modes and vehicles are fully considered at the initial stage. SCP provides input on all infrastructure needs including highway layout, drainage strategy, flood risk assessments, site levels, utility investigations, and all matters of phasing. Our involvement ensures efficiency in developing the site and minimises unavoidable costs and delays,and considers road safety, congestion and access by sustainable modes.

Site master planning and the detailing of site levels is a complicated task that requires careful thought and consideration. This process requires a transport planner to provide layout and phasing advice and an engineer with the capability to consider and manage the relationship between the geotechnical, structural, environmental, and civil engineering disciplines.

SCP’s professionally qualified staff can offer sensible solutions to complicated site-level problems. To do this SCP uses the most up-to-date 3D modelling packages to review and present the data and results.

These services aim to avoid or mitigate the need for unnecessary earthworks and alterations to statutory undertaker services, which can be expensive, environmentally unfriendly, and also programme heavy.
