We are Vector Planning & Design Ltd - an independent architectural design and town planning consultancy company based in East Sussex. Formed in 2014, Vector emerged out of our own separate companies, Hadley Town Planning and ArchiVision Building Design, when it became apparent to us that clients were looking for a single company that could take a project through every stage of the design and planning process. Our clients range from private householders through to professional developers and public utility companies. Collectively, we have over 40 years’ experience in both the private and public utility companies which means the services we can offer are wide ranging and comprehensive. Please see our Services page for more details.
Our ethos is simple; to complete each project, no matter how big or small, to the very best of our ability and for our clients to be left feeling delighted with the end result.
Meet the Team
Town Planning Director - Peter Cornfield MRTPI CIHM
"I initially started working with West Midlands Planning Aid and Midland authorities and then as a Local Authority Development Management
officer for two councils in Sussex prior to becoming a consultant. Hadley Town Planning was established in 2011 to provide both town planning and development advice to a wide variety of clients with property in urban and/or rural areas. During my time with local government, I considered in excess of 3000 planning applications and dealt with many appeals. Since moving to the private sector I have formed a diverse portfolio through Hadley Town Planning and further expanded in establishing Vector Planning & Design Ltd. Since Vector was formed we have widened the portfolio by venturing into the utilities sector in supporting them with planning applications and advice as well as close liaison work with 83 local authorities and county councils in ensuring their consultation process is robust. This experience and knowledge has proved invaluable in offering advice and support on various town planning matters that utility companies experience in their day to day operations.
Architectural Director - Richard Sprange
I worked in architectural practices for over 20 years prior to setting up my own business, ArchiVision Building Design, in 2008. Over this period, I have amassed a broad knowledge of all aspects of architectural design and gained experience in a wide variety of areas including residential, commercial, ecclesiastical, leisure and retail and most recently in the utilities sector. This experience enables me to have a good insight into our clients’ needs and to be able to give them a range of options to choose from, whatever their project. Pete and I are supported by a great team of both technical and administrative staff who all bring their own individual experience and skills to the business – enabling us to offer a level and range of service to our clients that we are really proud of.
