John Fregonese and his team will travel to the suburbs of Greater London later this month for their first project in the United Kingdom. The Epping Forest District Council has retained Fregonese Associates to perform a capacity analysis and identify strategic infill sites in and around existing town centers.
As part of their new role in international planning, Fregonese staff have calibrated their GIS-based scenario planning tool, Envision Tomorrow, for use in the UK, Canada, and entire European Union. The Fregonese team will spend a week presenting the draft findings of their capacity analysis and doing field work to identify a handful of strategic infill sites for further study. The results of the study will provide detailed financial analysis and engaging visuals for use in council decisions and to help drum up developer interest.
