Landscape consultancy is a cyclical business and we find ourselves working increasingly in social housing projects just like back in the 1980�s!

Our current workload is much wider than this and current projects include the redevelopment of the Ellesmere Shopping Centre in Walkden, Medical Centre projects in Caerphilly, Abergele, Fleetwood and Halifax, The new DSA development at Silkwood Park in Wakefield and Hamilton Court in Little Lever - The first social housing to be built in Bolton for over 20 years.

Our involvement in the Playbuilder schemes in Oldham continues, following successful completion of the Whitehall Lane Playspace, we are now working on the year two scheme at Werneth Park.

New projects being added to the website on a regular basis, the most recent addition being Whitehall Lane Playbuilder Scheme in the Portfolio section. Another scheme we have been involved in is the new medical centre in Abergele which can be seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3g3t1OJ7MI (video courtesy of MedicX)
