WYG has announced four senior appointments to its Manchester planning team, following an increase in new business. The new appointments strengthen the capabilities of the twelve strong fee earning team, and cement further WYG’s status as a top 5 UK planning consultancy established with the acquisition of Alliance Planning in September.
Peter Campbell joins as a Town Planner from Deloitte; Lauren Thompson has joined as a Senior Planner from Cheshire East Council; Diane Ellis has joined as an Associate Planner from Consilium Planning; and Lindsay Whitley is the latest recruit to the Manchester office, joining from IBI Group as a Principal Urban Designer.
Lindsay is the first Manchester-based Urban Designer to be recruited to the office, and will work alongside the wider planning, engineering, highway and environment teams at WYG.
Elsewhere in the North West, Peter Shannon joins the Cumbria office from Allerdale Council as a Senior Planner.
Paul Shuker, Director of the Manchester and Cumbria Planning teams said:
“It has been an exciting time for the team as our overall business has gone from strength to strength over the last twelve months. We continue to deliver innovative and complex projects for our clients and partners across a diverse range of sectors, and I am delighted to announce these appointments in order to allow us to meet current and future clients’ needs moving forward.”
