Urban and Environmental Design

Our Urban and Environmental Design section works to draw together the range of different disciplines involved in the built environment, including architecture, planning, and landscape design through to advising on disability access; all to deliver high quality places that are distinctive, attractive and respond to their context.

We improve the quality of Sheffield's built environment through the promotion of good design and the protection of the City's heritage.

We protect Sheffield's best trees where they may be under threat by issuing Tree Preservation Orders and by controlling work to private trees in Conservation Areas.
