The independent planning consultancy has strengthened its team in Manchester with associate director Clare Bland returning to its Lowry House office from London.
Bland has worked at Indigo Planning's London office for four years and is being brought back in May to provide added expertise to the Manchester team.
Indigo said she will continue to work on projects across the country and her return is a reflection of an upturn in instructions over the last six months.
Meanwhile, Bernadette Woods, also based in Indigo's Manchester office, was promoted to planner after three years with the firm. She has gained a broad range of experience working closely with pension fund and developer clients.
Bill Davidson, director of Indigo and head of its Manchester office, said: "We are pleased to welcome Clare back to Manchester and our clients will benefit from the added resource and expertise. Bernadette's promotion is a well-deserved reflection of her hard work and growing experience during what has been a particularly challenging time."
Indigo Planning also has an office in Leeds and an associate office in Dublin.
