Urban Counsel can inform, advise and support your role in these activities, whether developer, planner or project/business manager.

offers experience of undertaking such reviews in a variety of organisations. It can act as a critical friend, a creative catalyst, and a strategic range-finder to challenge and test your corporate assumptions, aspirations, and objectives. Urban Counsel can also help as a technical communicator and facilitator, to help you articulate your plans unequivocally and secure immediate and consistent understanding among your internal and external stakeholders.
