Trí Spatial Planning is a purpose driven consultancy that applies the 3 pillars of sustainable development to our balanced decision making – Environmental | Social | Economic.
Spatial planning builds on traditional town planning principles and is the established common approach to planning practice across Europe. Compared with other regulatory land-use planning approaches, it is distinctive for: encouraging long-term strategic visions; improved integration across sectoral plans and activity; greater integration of technical & scientific information; balancing environmental, social and economic factors in achieving sustainable development; and advancing engagement with the public and stakeholders.
We bridge the gap between science and policy, integrate research into practice and apply a holistic approach to planning.
