About Us

Urban Imprint is a town planning and urban design consultancy based in Macclesfield, Cheshire. In 2012, Bob Phillips founded the company with the aim of providing a studio based practice offering high quality and robust development solutions. Since then, we have worked for a range for public and private sector clients throughout the UK and across a number of development sectors including residential, commercial, masterplanning and policy making.

Our core values are transparency, openness, professionalism and integrity. Our team members are expert and approachable, committed to providing a superb service to our clients. We work closely with our clients to ensure that not only do they fully understand the planning system but embrace the opportunities it provides. We work as a team, using the talents of everyone in the studio for the best outcomes. We enjoy finding bespoke solutions to difficult challenges and consistently exceed expectations in the creation of high quality places.

“I couldn't recommend Urban Imprint highly enough, they are amazingly competent and professional, and fully inspire confidence in their abilities.”
