Our input is principally at the project development stages where we ensure that the need for environmental consents and approvals is identified.

You’ll be involved in ground-breaking and award-winning work, leaving a lasting legacy for the future through effective collaboration across internal departments, the wider Defra group, statutory bodies, our framework delivery partners, businesses and communities.
