Leading planning and development consultancy Turley has strengthened its planning team and broadened their offering in the region following a period of growth.
Sarah Cox has joined the firm’s planning team as associate director, moving from Barton Willmore where she spent 13 years. Sarah brings diverse experience in delivering a wide range of residential, commercial and mixed-use planning projects for a diverse client base including developers and investment funds.
Senior consultant Michael Browne has transferred from Turley’s Birmingham office. The move bolsters the Environmental Impact Assessment services delivered from their Leeds office, which also offers planning, urban design and heritage consultancy. Karina Withers has also joined the team as an Urban Designer, having previously worked at Pegasus.
Commenting about the new hires, director, Matthew Sheppard, said: “Sarah, Michael and Karina join us at a time of growth for the Leeds city region and for Turley. We are offering a wider range of services from our base here in Yorkshire and continue to work closely with colleagues across the North to unlock the full range of Turley services for our clients. Market demand for our offering continues to gather pace and we see a very bright future for this region.”
Speaking about her appointment, Sarah Cox added: “Turley is a leading consultancy with an excellent track record and I am delighted to be joining the company. It’s an exciting time in Leeds. Turley’s growing client base presents fantastic opportunities and I am looking forward to contributing to the delivery of transformational projects across the North.”
