Planning consultancy LUC has announced that it has made three promotions.
Steven Orr has been made director of historic environment; he has more than 15 years in practice. Orr’s expertise includes heritage management and impact assessment, conservation management plans, character assessment, research and policy/guidance development, peer review of environmental statements and expert witness work.
Orr said: “While there are definitely challenges for our heritage – in the form of climate change, planning reform and the need to understand the full stories of our treasured places – there are also significant opportunities for LUC in contributing robust evidence and high-quality, sensitive solutions. We have a great team in place and I’m excited to see what we can do!”
Iain Mackenzie has been promoted to associate ecologist and Michal Ostalowski has moved up to consultant ecologist. Mackenzie coordinates ornithological and ecological input at all project stages, from field survey through to client and consultee liaison, data analysis, constraint mapping and assessment including Habitats Regulations Appraisal. He and Ostalowski work on numerous development types at LUC, particularly projects in the renewables sector, principally onshore wind, and on overhead power line developments.
