At ActivePlanning our main focus is on preparing policies and supporting statements. Our starting point will always be the creation of communities where people walk and cycle more often, that are low-carbon and which do not invoke car dependency.

Past projects clearly demonstrate our narrative capabilities. We assemble processed baseline information and text to support the preparation of:

  • Local Plan policies relating to transport, walking and cycling and urban design. This includes defending policies at Examination in Public.

  • Local Transport Plan (LTP) policies and proposals relating to active travel and narrative writing for entire LTPs.

  • Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs) including fast-tracked LCWIPs responding to COVID-19.

  • Masterplanning narratives and Design and Access statements. This includes policy and network analysis.

  • Public realm design guidance setting out clear and simple standards responding to the road danger reduction agenda.

  • Statutory Rights of Way Improvement Plans.

  • Statutory Green Infrastructure Study narratives.

Policy and strategy writing

Policy and strategy documents should be clear and robust, containing enough information to make them defensible, and yet brief enough so that readers are not 'lost' in reams of text.

At ActivePlanning we believe that quality is more important than quantity.
