Green Planning Studio is delighted to welcome the first practice twins, Erin and Oliver. They were born to Helen Morris and her partner Jason on 21st May.
Green Planning Studio Ltd are exhibiting again at the Southern Homebuilding & Renovating Show today and tomorrow (Saturday the 30th of June and Sunday the 1st of July 2018). Ruth Reed and Ian Leighton are there to offer Architectural, Design, Renovation and Planning advice on stand S552. If you are at the show pop in and see us.
As the first female President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Ruth made history in 2009, following more than 175 years of male leadership. She has been photographed by artist Anita Corbin as part of this epic project of 100 portraits of trailblazing women in all fields of public life, alongside Betty Boothroyd, Nicola Sturgeon, and Dame Stella Rimmington to name a very few.
Artist Anita Corbin said: “Ten years ago, I had a powerful vision. I knew I had to create a body of work unlike anything I’d seen before. I wanted to celebrate women who have pushed boundaries to achieve their dreams in their own field. I wanted to tell their story, and I wanted it to be seen in 2018 as a celebration of 100 years of female suffrage.”
Of her inclusion in the project, Ruth said: “I am thrilled to be part of this exhibition and honoured to be amongst such amazing role models”.
The First Women UK exhibition will open on 20th July 2018 in the Dyson Gallery of the Royal College of Art, Riverside, 1 Hester Road, London SW11 4AN. Entry is free, 12noon-5pm daily until 22nd August. The exhibition will then travel around the UK, (dates and venues to be announced).

On Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day #christmasjumperday2017,
Green Planning Studio Ltd would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers and visitors a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
2017 has been another successful year winning more cases and gaining more planning permissions for a host of diverse sites. 2018 promises continued growth for us as a practice and many more planning permissions granted for our clients.
Our offices will be closed from 5 pm on the 22nd of December 2017 until 9 am on the 2nd of January 2018 inclusively.
After a couple of days of disruption due to the heavy snow in Shropshire, both on Monday and part of yesterday, we are pleased to confirm that the office is open as normal again today.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients and potential clients for their patience during this disruption.
Ruth Reed joined Andrew Carpenter and talked about her career as an Architect that has spanned public and private practice and the Planning Inspectorate, being the first woman president of the Royal Institute of British Architects where she continues to represent the profession in planning matters.
In this episode, Ruth talks about moving from her background in architecture to planning. Top tips for anyone wanting to gain planning permission and why she loves timber frame so much. “I got into planning to defend the genuinely good.”

Our Director, Matthew Green, is going to be speaking on “Maximising Your Land Use” at the Holiday Park & Resort Innovation show on the 9th in Theatre Hall 10.
I will be setting out how Green Planning Studio can help landowners and potential landowners identify how they can maximise the planning opportunities on their sites. This can include exploiting the conditions or lack of conditions on an existing planning permission and how alternative uses can be found for a site. We can identify existing uses and show how a certificate of lawfulness can open up the potential of sites. This can benefit tourism uses such as glamping, caravans and even tree houses as well as other rural activities from agriculture to rural crafts. We are at the forefront of emerging case law which gives our clients exceptional opportunities not open to them from conventional planning strategies.
