NEWARK and London-based landscape architect Influence is starting the year on a high following a record year in 2020 - which saw a 50% increase in projects compared to 2019.

The chartered practice, based on Mill Gate, recently hit the headlines with its bold and ambitious green vision for Not- tingham's now redundant Broadmarsh, on behalf of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.

The plans put forward to Nottingham City Council showed a transformed and reimagined Nottingham city centre, with a proposed 100% greenspace. Despite the challenging conditions of 2020, the chartered landscape architect – which delivers landscape architecture, urban design, environment planning and expert witness services - has had a record 12 months in business and plans for further team expansion.

Last year the company worked on major developments across the country. In the midlands projects included; Special Educational Needs schools in Lincolnshire, the county's major flood defence scheme and the university's medical school. In Northamptonshire, the recently designated High-Street Heritage Action Zones.

Closer to home, the skilled team are working on a housing regeneration project in Newark and delivering bespoke landscape services for a number of private dwellings in and around Southwell. The practice has also previously worked for Southwell Diocese.

Sara Boland, managing director, said: "We are proud to be a Newark-based business and to be celebrating our record year. I'd like to thank our team for their hard work and all our brilliant clients who choose to work with us.

"The pandemic has catapulted green space to the forefront of people's minds both at home and at work, and it will continue to play an incredibly important role in our wellbeing."
