Masterplanning and Urban Design


AM-P has a long track record in developing successful and deliverable masterplans and regeneration strategies and other design-led documents.

Our masterplanning work has included the identification of potential growth options, the design of sustainable urban extensions on green field and regeneration sites, and masterplans and campus planning for large complex sites to guide future development for institutions and corporate bodies.

Urban design is an integral part of many aspects of our work, promoting best practice in placemaking to create high quality and well-designed places for people to live and work.

The team has extensive experience of visually realising the development aspirations of our clients. The design capabilities of AM-P are provided below:

Planning and Design Documents

  • Promotional documents to support of site promotion through the Local Plan Process, at both strategic and local level.
  • Supplementary planning documents (SPD)
  • Development Briefs
  • Design and Access Statements
  • Masterplan Framework Documents

Concept Masterplans

High level spatial concept masterplans to explore the development potential of a site within its specific context, including potential landscape and access proposals.

Indicative Layouts

Indicative layouts at a range of scales to support pre-application stage, full and outline planning applications and local plan site allocation promotion.

Indicative Section Elevations

To provide a visual section through a proposed development to illustrate heights, widths and site levels in context.

Parameter Plans

Technical drawings to support strategic planning applications which set out key principles and parameters for development including density, building heights, landscape, access and movement, land use etc.

Indicative Street Views and Photomontages

Indicative street views and montages to illustrate proposals in context, visually providing a sense of scale and form of a proposal in context. This is also an essential tool for site visual impact appraisal work and can be used to assess ‘before’ and ‘after’ comparisons.

Supporting Plans

We can prepare a range of drawings to support your planning applications, including site location plans, block plans, elevations, floor and roof plan.
