The team at PJA supports a wide range of private and public sector clients, helping to deliver numerous residential, commercial and mixed use schemes for expanding towns and cities, throughout the UK and overseas.

Development planning is at the very core of our business, and we bring significant added value by integrating transport planning and placemaking.  The Transport Assessment process lies at the heart of what we do, and we have built a multi-disciplinary team of transport planners, highway engineers, urban designers and landscape architects to bring breadth to our services.

We take pride in what we do and we feel strongly about our core values:

  • We are interested in our people and our clients;
  • We are creative and always find a way of doing things;
  • We stand out for our good design, for place making and for movement;
  • We are thinkers and are keen to share our experiences and knowledge;
  • We advise with passion and credibility; and 
  • We care about our reputation.

    This transformative project in South Gloucestershire will deliver 2,675 homes, as well as office and industrial workplaces for 9,000 people on the historic airfield site. The 142 hectare development will also provide new town and local centres, primary and secondary schools, a new railway station, strategic cycle infrastructure, an extension to the West of England MetroBus network and a destination park. The site lies at the heart of the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood allocation, which will provide around 5,000 new homes, one of the biggest regeneration projects in the area for over a decade.

    We worked closely with the masterplan team, which was led by Allies and Morrison, and included Grant Associates (landscape architects) and Peter Brett Associates (engineering), to shape the movement strategy and develop street design concepts for the site that focused on provision for active travel.

    Having acquired the site in 2015, YTL Developments (UK) achieved consent for the outline planning application in October..
