About 278 Consulting


It is common for developers to gain planning permission and only then to discover that they need to progress through the Highway Authority’s s278 Agreement procedures. We know from our vast experience that this requires time, patience and experienced advice. 278 Consulting was therefore established by Simon Colbourn BEng, CEng, MICE, MCIHT in 2010 to provide Clients with an efficient service for the design of such works based around his extensive experience in undertaking constructive dialogue with Highway Authorities.
