Broadgrove hires principal planner

The Stockport-based planning consultancy has grown its team with the appointment of Jack Appleton as principal planner.

Appleton joins from the same role at Alder King, where he worked for over four years. He has previously covered private sector planning from the preparation of planning appraisals, development plan promotion, through to submission of planning applications and appeals.

Broadgrove is currently advising on 12,500 residential plots across the UK, including on the County Hotel in Alderley Edge and the Fusions Students scheme in Liverpool City Centre.

Richard Walters, director at Broadgrove, said: “It is well documented that, in order for towns and cities to be sustainable, the offering has to change. But, while retailers may be realigning their strategies, we are seeing growth. A principal planner, Jack’s 10 years of experience in both the public and private sectors will be invaluable in enabling us to grow the business, both in the region and across the UK.

“There is an increased appetite for more diverse developments in town and city centres and we believe that the stability of a newly elected government will instil greater confidence.”
