Portrait of Stephen Spacie

I am Stephen Spacie Dip. LA CMLI, proprietor & co-director of Aspen Landscape Design [Planning] Services, (Aspen LDPS) a consultancy specialising in obtaining planning consents for landowners & fellow professionals. Our fact gathering is objective and our solutions sustainable via good design & negotiation. Aspen LDPS is the trading name of Malvern Property Management Ltd registered with Companies House no. 4006564.

I am a fully qualified Chartered Landscape Architect and have practised for 35 years.

As explained in my CV, I have held senior positions in consultancies in London and Bristol and worked in the public sector for the Black Country Development Corporation and British Waterways.

During the earlier stages of my career, I was predominantly engaged in presenting evidence at over 50 public inquiries and hearings for residential, commercial & land raising schemes, where the consideration of visual impact was paramount. I then spent up to 10 years specialising in the design of landscape remediation schemes for opencast mines, quarries & landfills, developing skills of understanding landforms.

During the past 20 years I have restored both buildings & landscapes, worked with ecologists & heritage experts and developed skills in relation to sustainability, ecological planting design & rewilding.
