The Environmental Protection Group (EPG) is now a registered Urban Design Practitioner with the Urban Design Group.

Founded in 1978, the Urban Design Group (UDG) is a campaigning membership organisation dedicated to raising the standards of urban design to improve the quality of life in our cities, towns and villages.

Through its work as a geo-environmental engineering design consultancy, EPG is well-placed to positively influence the built environment, and is committed to providing clients with futureproof solutions that help to protect and enhance our precious environments.

Phil Williams, EPG’s Technical Director, commented: “Designing solutions that protect the environment is at the core of what we do, and being part of organisations which enable us to join forces with like-minded companies and individuals is key to making this a fundamental principle of urban design.

“The recent government decision to implement schedule 3 of The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 which will mandate sustainable drainage (SuDS) in new developments is an very positive step forward, but there is so much more we can do. I’m looking forward to working alongside others in the Urban Design Group to educate and influence decision makers.”
