Social, economic and cultural changes are natural evolution processes that impact the pattern of urban development. These changes offer opportunities for creative adaptations of land for new uses. Planning is the instrument that guides this process by formalizing a vision that can be shared by both public and private interests.

At the Arsh Group, our specialists often take the lead in physical and environmental resetting of our clients' communities. We consider cultural assets, social traditions, economic opportunities and the natural environment as we assist our clients to frame their vision. Increasingly, the new technologies enable us to involve people in such issues as urban growth and reinvestment, restoring mixed uses, and finding ideas that can build a community.

Our Approach
We aim to develop environments which foster viable communities, promotes variation and diversity, and encourage social and ecological well being. The value of the Arsh Group Planning lies in our ability to establish the connections that create meaningful identity and develops a sense of place.
