Despite the shock of the general election, and the confusion that followed, the Town Planning market is still buoyant. As you’re probably aware from recent news and media, the demand for housing is at the top of the agenda across councils and consultancies in the UK. There’s an undeniable shortage of homes, and a lot of complications when it comes to allocating sites within the local plans. The best way to beat that is to ensure that there are exceptional town planners submitting and reviewing the applications to ensure the housing strategies are delivered efficiently and effectively. There is a huge demand for planners with residential experience, across various scales of projects. We have roles in both the public and private sector for individuals with these skillsets and backgrounds.   Housing is a critical issue, but it’s not the only area of importance. Our clients are also investing in building their design teams, recruiting skilled and creative urban designers and landscape architects with unique flair.  There is also a lot of interest in Planner’s with a background in strategic land to join developers. There’s a wealth of opportunity to be explored, and a few of our most exciting and relevant opportunities can be found listed below.
