The Planning Company Planning, Environment and Sustainability


Town planning, environmental issues and sustainability are key issues for many businesses and public sector bodies. Work in these areas is not always constant and there tend to be peaks and troughs in workloads. The Planning Company was established in Worcester in February 2007 by Colin Blundel to provide a flexible service in meeting both short term and longer term or ongoing needs for work in these areas. This could be a one-off arrangement for a particular project or a regular ongoing commitment in a freelance capacity. The Company has recently been undertaking contracts in the East and West Midlands


The approach of The Planning Company is to put the environment at the core of the planning and project management process. The Company aims to lead by example and operate as an environmentally friendly business.


The scope of the services offered by the company is very broad and the following are some of the key areas of work:
