PWA Planning in Preston has recruited Daniel Hughes as senior planner and Mateo Espinosa as assistant planner.
Hughes moved from CH2M HILL in Warrington where he built up a specialism within infrastructure planning, working alongside the Highways Agency, United Utilities and the Environment Agency, advising clients on a wide range of development projects from initial appraisal through to construction and operation.
Espinosa was employed at Bellway Homes in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, providing planning support to its in-house planning team.
There are now six people in the PWA Preston office.
Paul Walton, director of PWA Planning, said: "I would like to welcome Dan and Mateo to the team. I feel sure that they will be great assets to PWA Planning and to our clients, bringing considerable planning experience and with excellent skills to add to the experienced planning team."
