What we do
Who we do it for
We work with a wide range of professionals including architects, surveyors, local authorities and Highways England.
We bring expertise and technical knowhow to professionals in the planning stages of a project. This ensures the success of each project, eliminating the cost of amending design once the construction process is underway. Through Highways and Infrastructure Design, Transport Modelling and Data Services to Transport Planning and Environmental Assessment.
We guide and assist developers through all stages of a project, from pre-planning to construction.
Whether it is a one unit dwelling or a major development, we work with builders to create innovative and sustainable structures that meet client needs and legislative guidance.
We work with builders by giving pre-planning advice that guides the building process through requirements such as Sustainable Drainage Systems, Noise and Vibration Control, Waste Management and Transport Access.

How we helped others
Mayer Brown were appointed on behalf of Saville Jones Consultants in relation to the redevelopment of Edmonton Methodist Church and introduction of 24 residential units in the London Borough of Enfield.
Pentalver Transport Limited are a leading provider of container logistics services in the UK offering storage, specialist haulage and cargo handling from five sites nationwide.
Mayer Brown were appointed by Angle Property (Headley Court) LLP to provide transport planning advice to support an ambitious and exciting mixed-use residential and care scheme based in Headley Court, a former Ministry of Defence rehabilitation hospital facility in Mole Valley, Surrey. Much of the site comprises Grade II listed historic buildings, presenting a unique challenge in ensuring the scheme that came forward could preserve the site’s history and reflect the local area, whilst also making effective use of this attractive but defunct brownfield site for new development.
Dashwood is a 38 hectare woodland in south Hampshire, designated as a Site of Interest for Nature Conservation (SINC) due to its Ancient Woodland habitat. The woodland has been managed for many years by Southwick Estate with public access currently limited to a single footpath. Dashwood has been identified as the first of three areas of Suitable Alternative of Natural Green Space (SANGS) to be delivered for the adjacent Welborne Garden Village - a 2.8km footpath is planned within the wood allowing wider public access.
In 2012 Grainger plc acquired outline planning permission for the development of approximately 2,650 dwellings, two primary schools, employment use, leisure facilities and associated infrastructure on around 200 hectares of land to the west of Waterlooville in Hampshire. The works also included the restoration and ‘rewilding’ of 1km length of the River Wallington and the provision of numerous sustainable drainage (SUDS) features and community nature reserves. The development became known as Berewood and construction began in 2013. Engineers at Mayer Brown have been fortunate to be involved with Berewood since its inception; providing transport, design and environmental inputs at every stage of the development process.
The Marine Works site is a 0.21 hectare parcel of land located on Embankment Road off Bembridge Harbour on the Isle of Wight. At the time Mayer Brown was engaged, it was vacant land which had formerly been used as a boat yard. The Client’s vision was to re-purpose this land, formalising and refurbishing it to provide an additional 6 workshops / storage units and associated landscaping and parking.
What clients say about us
Mayer Brown brought their expertise to a complex project and were instrumental in co-ordinating the external disciplines. As a result, we were able to produce a high quality product within the tight timescales required.
Mayer Brown’s approach to Environmental Management throughout the project has been substantial and the knowledge about the site itself was invaluable to Careys Civil Engineering for delivering a high quality job. The consistently professional manner in which environmental concerns were addressed was second to none. Their collaborative, open door approach has ensured we have been able to work together and achieve a high environmental standard across site.
I have used Mayer Brown’s services over a period of many years and have always found them to be very professional, knowledgeable and innovative when it comes to resolving today’s highways issues. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them
We have worked with Mayer Brown for many years and have found them to be completely reliable, communicative and their practical approach to getting the job done ensures they always get the right result. In one word, excellent!
I have worked with Gavin Toogood and Mayer Brown on a number of projects and can highly recommend the professional service. On one scheme in Colwell, IW Gavin designed a scheme which saved the client money and time by coming up with a cost effective solution to the Council's highways concerns. His work enabled the application to be granted in a timely manner. The client was delighted!
Enormous thanks to Gavin and Mayer Brown on sorting out my EA licence on a sewage system that is servicing a population of 29. The septic tank needed to be upgraded following an EA inspection and the resulting work involved pumping a 400 metre run of pipe to a running waterway in an environmentally sensitive area. The system required an EA licence and the sale of the property was dependant on the licence being granted. This had been hanging over me for a while and after battling with the EA paperwork for a week and making no progress I was given Mayer Brown’s name and Gavin took over the whole problem. The licence was granted quickly and efficiently. Enormous thanks to Gavin.
