David Lock Associates

David Lock Associates is an independent town planning, urban design and master planning consultancy in its thirtieth year of providing expert advice to the development industry.

We advise landowners and developers in planning and securing consent for new homes, jobs, transport infrastructure, retail and education. We advise business and civic leaders on city visioning; we work with local authorities and stakeholders on regeneration master plans and growth scenarios; and we help developers and investors bring sites to market.

Our legacy includes many of the UK’s strategic new settlements and urban extensions, now home to growing and thriving residential and business communities. Looking to the future, we are actively engaged in debates around comprehensive approaches to housing and infrastructure delivery.

Skilled practitioners and advocates, our team includes people with backgrounds in planning, architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, surveying, transport, civil engineering, graphic design, GIS and AutoCAD. We have a trusted, multi-disciplined network of fellow consultants, particularly through our ‘Collaborate’ partnership and our sister companies Integrated Transport Planning, DLA Architects Practice, DLA Australia and DLA Nordic.

Together we deliver creativity and pragmatism in equal measure for our public and private clients.
