Consultancy Services

Organisations based in North Northamptonshire have exclusive access to our in-person expertise through our consultancy services.

Our in-depth local knowledge, strong partnerships, connections and decades of experience means we can offer valuable support for your travel plans, engagement campaigns and infrastructure developments.

We work closely with North Northamptonshire Highways as well as others with large site responsibilities such as Rushden Lakes, Kettering General Hospital and Hanwood Park.

If you are based in the county and looking for local expertise to support your active travel infrastructure or engagement campaigns - whether for a public or private space -  get in touch with our projects team.  We'd love to have a chat to discuss your needs and develop the right proposal for you.

You can still benefit if you are based elsewhere in the UK as we share ideas developed through our many active travel projects. These ideas are complemented by our range of supporting products to help make your schemes a success wherever you are.
