Thomas Design Regeneration & Consultation
Described by clients as ‘full of ideas’ and ‘bringing enthusiasm and determination’, we enjoy drawing up inventive and market-focused strategies to make places better. A key part of this is increasing the public’s understanding of development and planning processes, so that there can be an informed debate on priorities and finding common ground.
As a small practice whose work is continually informed by education, research and challenging the norm, our recent projects include how to balance long-term development pressures with local needs, and improve existing places, for example:
- Ambitions for Notting Hill Gate - Public Consultation Strategy
- Re-planing the Royal Brompton Hospital - Public Consultation Strategy
- The Expansion of Princes Risborough Study (client side)
- Longwick Capacity Study (client side) and Neighbourhood Plan
- UDG Research Project ‘Understanding the Value of Urban Design to House Builders’
Louise Thomas is also joint editor of the Urban Design Group’s quarterly journal Urban Design, and a module leader on the MA Urban Design programme at the University of Westminster, London, looking at the relationship between development viability and urban design.
