Development and infrastructure consultancy Peter Brett Associates has recruited Tom Hallett, a graduate planner, to its Manchester office.
Tom graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University this year with an MA in Town & Regional Planning. He previously spent some time at WYG in Leeds on work experience, working on development schemes including wind farms, residential and a relief road bypass.
At PBA he will work on retail and residential schemes. Bernard Greep, director and head of the firm's Manchester office, said: "Our clients are becoming increasingly active as the economic recovery gathers momentum and are taking full advantage of the range of multi-disciplinary services we offer from our Manchester office. The addition of Tom to our team reflects this growing optimism in the marketplace and our healthy order-book."
