Capability Statement


Planning & Environmental


LSTC understands that engineering solutions for new build, upgrading and reinforcing existing networks must comply with the latest European, national and local environmental regulations and planning legislation.

Successful compliance is dependent on the synergy between engineering, environmental and planning departments.

Our experts are knowledgeable and their support towards your projects is guaranteed.


Planning, environmental or engineering aspects, considered in isolation, rarely provide acceptable solutions. Early foresight, collaboration and coordination of these aspects are paramount to a successful project.
