HOW Strengthens its Environmental Team
Manchester based HOW Planning has further strengthened its environmental team with a number of new appointments and promotions.
Principal Environmental Consultant Hilary Brett is now heading up the team which has also been boosted by the arrival of Laura Day as Senior Environmental Consultant.
Laura joins HOW from RSK and will be working on HOW’s growing portfolio of environmental work including Environmental Impact Assessments, EIA Screening and Scoping reports and Sustainability Assessments. Hilary and Laura each have ten years’ EIA experience, project managing and advising on significant projects across a range of sectors, including mixed-used regeneration, housing, retail, commercial development, leisure and infrastructure and energy.
New addition, Samuel Oliver, Graduate Environmental Planner, brings the number working within HOW’s environmental team to six, with Environmental Planner Jamie Lynch, Principal Environmental Planner Elizabeth McFadyean and Partner Jon Suckley, who oversees this specialist area of the business.
Says Jon: “Over the past few years we have grown steadily as a company and our environmental team is an integral part of our planning advisory service. These latest appointments and promotions further strengthen our overall business and will help us achieve our longer term aims and ambitious targets.”
Recent work for HOW’s environmental team includes preparation of the EIA for a proposed new link road and 1,000 dwelling mixed use scheme at South Heywood, Rochdale; EIA for a 2,000 dwelling residential led mixed use regeneration scheme at New Bolton Woods in Bradford, EIA for the new Moneystone leisure park in a former quarry in Staffordshire; and city centre residential and mixed use EIAs for schemes including Plot 10 Green Quarter, Manchester, and the West Bar quarter in Sheffield.
