Planning consultancy Barton Willmore continues to grown its newly opened Manchester office with the appointment of Steven Grimster, previously of GVA, as senior planner.
Dan Mitchell, partner and head of Barton Willmore Manchester, said: "Since we established our Manchester office nine months ago, we have continued to go from strength to strength securing a number of new project wins and consequently, recognised the need to grow our team in order to satisfy the demand from our clients. Steven has an excellent track record in both the commercial and residential sectors and has also been involved in a number of high profile energy schemes so I am confident that his experience will prove to be a valuable asset to the team."
The Manchester office opened with two fee earners and Grimster will become the sixth. The office's clients include Chester Zoo, St Modwen and Fordgate.
