Planning & Environmental Assessment

The Appleton Group provides services in a wide range of both Urban and Landscape Planning. Partner Philip Deeley is a Chartered Town Planner and David Appleton has appeared as an expert witness in over 100 public enquiries.

Our work scope ranges from site masterplanning, the submission of planning applications for new developments, the co-ordination of environmental assessment, landscape appraisals and attendance as expert witness for both court and public inquiries.

We have extensive experience of minerals and waste planning and its legislative framework and are able to respond to the high standards now required for restoration and reclamation schemes.

Past projects have included open cast coal extraction, sand workings and a major extension of the Accrington brickworks clay workings for Marshalls plc.
