North East planning consultancy Hedley Planning Services has opened a new office in Yorkshire
Stephen Litherland has been appointed director of the Yorkshire office at the Evolution on Wynyard Business Park.
He joins from Bellway Homes where he worked as group planning manager, covering planning matters on a national basis.
Litherland said: “Yorkshire is currently seeing strong demand for strategic planning requirements in the face of a buoyant commercial planning sector. Teesside is also on the up, with positive news of fresh investment and development.
“This is an exciting move and sees a new chapter of opportunity open in one of the most vibrant parts of the country. Leeds continues to see extremely strong growth supported by wider regional economic confidence.”
Sean Hedley, managing director of Hedley Planning Services, said: “The move will allow us to establish a greater presence across the wider north of England, develop existing important relationships and provide a more in-depth proposition for new clients seeking high quality professional planning services.
“Despite the uncertainty caused by Brexit, house building will be a busy sector for us and we expect to see more smaller builders entering the market in 2019, who will benefit from the services and support of Stephen and his team.”
