Good planning can balance the economic, social and environmental factors arising from development for the common good. It can marry land use, transport and development objectives to create places that are successful, profitable and flexible into the future and give people an attractive environment in which to live, work and play.
At John Duffy Design Group, we believe that engagement between the Client and the Community is key to the success of any project and we aim to achieve consensus and support for a well thought out solution to every Brief. Our objective is to provide principled, imaginative and practical designs for all our projects, big or small.

Our Planning, Masterplanning and Urban Design activities involve;

  • Submissions to planning authorities for appropriate zoning of land in new development plans or as variations to existing plans.
  • Development of framework/master plans for the regeneration of brownfield land or for the creation of new┬áneighborhoods in urban and rural contexts.
  • Management of the planning application process from inception to conclusion. This could run from pre-planning negotiations with statutory bodies to set the agenda for the project right through to the submission or response to planning appeals or representing the client at oral hearings or court proceedings
