Property and construction consultancy Ingleton Wood strengthens planning team

Property and construction consultancy Ingleton Wood – which has offices across the East of England and London – has responded to changes in Government policy by strengthening its planning department.

The team of five, which includes a mix of principal, senior and junior planners, has a huge back catalogue of experience and will work across all Ingleton Wood’s offices in Norwich, Cambridge, Colchester, Billericay and London.

John Dixon, Partner at Ingleton Wood, said: “Following the Government’s planning announcements earlier this spring and the region’s ongoing demand for more affordable and better housing, we felt that now was the right time to restructure our planning department to reflect the changing demands and needs of our clients.”

Nicol Perryman, Principal Planner at the Norwich office, added: “We now have a highly experienced, dynamic and friendly team that has worked in a variety of environments, including private consultancies, local authorities and central government.”

Selwyn Atkinson, Principal Planner based in the London office, commented: “There are lots of exciting developments in the pipeline which we’re delighted to be involved with – from urban regeneration and schemes for rural communities, through to sustainability projects for both private clients and local authorities.”

Established in the 1960s, Ingleton Wood has six offices across the East of England and London, employing close to 200 staff.

With commissions ranging from new build and refurbishment projects to masterplanning and survey work, the practice covers a range of sectors including education, healthcare, housing, local authority and commercial.
