PBA's high-quality, focused economic advice supports projects through:
Case making and strategy development. Economic criteria are often foremost in decision making, whether by government, planning authorities or funding bodies. By clearly demonstrating the rationale and economic effects of development, our team strengthens planning applications and environmental statements. We establish the economic basis for development, regeneration and masterplanning projects. We also support major infrastructure, regeneration and development projects and funding bids across the UK.
Viability and feasibility analysis. Our deep understanding of the fundamentals of economics and development allows us to offer critical insight when considering project viability or appropriate development contributions.
Research and evidence gathering. Our thorough research and analysis adds value to current databases and intelligence. Strong GIS and infographics skills ensure accessible reporting. We apply these services in preparing market and sector analyses, LDP evidence bases, evaluation and monitoring frameworks, and other applications
