Property consultancy Fisher German has strengthened its planning team in Ashby after making four appointments.
The company has welcomed John Nicol as a planner, Kerry Andrews as an assistant planner, and Isabelle Holliday and Jabu Phiri as graduate planners.
The appointments have been made as part of Fisher German’s plans to respond to increasing client demand and to expand its presence across the Midlands.
Nicol said: “I’m extremely pleased to join Fisher German at what is an incredibly interesting time for the planning sector.
“It is great to be practising at a time when the operations of the profession are changing quite significantly in this regard and building an understanding of what this will mean for the delivery of development and for our clients in the future is important.”
Andrews said: “Fisher German has a fantastic planning team with a strong work ethic. Everyone works together to do a good job for clients, which is excellent to be part of.
“Planning plays a huge part in the delivery of new housing, and the next year or two will be very interesting in terms of the new planning regulations being introduced by the government.”
Liberty Stones, head of planning at Fisher German, said: “We are delighted to welcome four new members of the planning team to Fisher German, further strengthening the services we provide to our clients.
“There is a significant need for both housebuilding to meet housing targets and large-scale infrastructure projects, and we are well-placed to support the delivery of these.”
