What is Hyas
Hyas is a new type of consultancy focussed upon helping deliver great places through the planning system.
With a core staff of trusted and experienced professionals, a strong reputation and track record, and a unique ‘collaborative’ project focused approach, Hyas provides something different to mainstream planning consultancies.
Hyas has been founded by a small number of original members of the Advisory Team for Large Applications (ATLAS). The approach takes forward the positive, visionary and inclusive approach that has underpinned it’s success. The ethos is the same – to work with local stakeholders in an independent manner to help bring forward great places through positive working. The name ‘Hyas’ captures the essence of this evolution, as, in Greek mythology, Hyas was the son of the Titan Atlas.
The team fully understand that every project will have different needs and challenges. A bespoke service is provided addressing the specific issues, needs & challenges. We will take into account a project’s broader context, the key stakeholders involved and wider influences.
The team are specialists in advising on large scale, complex development projects – particularly residential led initiatives. All team members bring considerable knowledge and experience having worked across a wide range of the largest and most complex residential led projects that have come forward in the UK over recent years. This includes urban extensions, new settlements, Garden Cities/Villages, inner-urban regeneration projects and estate renewal.
