Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design is a creative team of architects, planners and urban designers.
Established by Francis Tibbalds in 1978, we have a longstanding reputation for our urban design expertise, and for providing a consistently high quality service to our clients. Our philosophy is clear: to make people-friendly places for the benefit of those who will use them. We are majority employee-owned.
We focus on the interface between planning and urban design, bringing the two together to create innovative solutions for a wide variety of projects. Our experience ranges from initial feasibility through to implementation, and our work includes: masterplanning, urban design and guidance, regeneration, neighbourhood planning, town planning and public realm strategies.
Every project has its own complexities and specific requirements. We tailor our approach to each project’s needs, combining design excellence, a sound commercial approach and a clear planning strategy to deliver high quality outcomes.
We advise a wide variety of public, private and third sector clients and have a good understanding of the aspirations and requirements that drive projects.
We are familiar with working for clients who are promoting development as well as for those who regulate it. We have particular expertise in advising public sector bodies on land disposal and development.
