We are delighted to announce additional appointments to the Manchester Planning team. Workload continues to increase, principally from the North West, as a result of both the region’s continued growth and from WYG’s national multi-disciplinary framework successes.
John Leggett (pictured left), formerly of AMEC, joins the team as an Associate Planner, and brings with him thirteen years of experience, notably in the Nuclear/Energy sector and delivery of complex EIA projects, including Hinkley Point C for EDF Energy, Sellafield and Capenhurst for Urenco UK and CNS.
Additionally, Simon Peake (pictured right) joins WYG from IBI Group as an Associate Planner. With extensive residential and regeneration experience linked to transforming parts of East Manchester for the HCA, he brings with him 15 years of planning practice.
The total number of fee earners in the Manchester Planning team now reaches 16.
Paul Shuker, Director of Planning at WYG in Manchester, said:
‘I’m delighted to welcome John and Simon to the team to build on our existing client base and to explore new infrastructure and regeneration opportunities that are currently being presented to WYG through our partners.’
