Wynyard planning experts Hedley Planning Services has boosted its operations with the appointment of an assistant planner.

The move will see Hannah Chapman working alongside director Stephen Litherland on new business development and providing strategic planning support for residential and commercial clients across the region.

She will work closely with the senior management team as they oversee expansion and demand across Teesside and Yorkshire, particularly around the company’s strategic land promotion expertise.

Hannah Chapman has been involved in planning applications for residential developments in Wynyard and securing approval for a 450,000 sq. ft industrial estate at Urlay Nook Road, Eaglescliffe.

Stephen Litherland said further new roles will be created as he invests in building a skilled and dedicated regional team at the Evolution-based office to meet demand.

He said: “Our clients will benefit from Hannah’s strategic insight and creative approach to finding sustainable solutions for developing estates, land and assets.She’s firmly committed to providing a quality service and will contribute to supporting existing and new clients with her valuable insight and expert advice.”

Hedley Planning Services’ Wynyard office is already involved in several regional projects with further new work expected to fall into place over the coming months as demand for its services increases.
