Planning duo joins East Mids Consultancy

East Midlands based planning and urban design consultancy nineteen47 has strengthened its team with a duo of new hires, bringing on board Rebecca Beardsley and Harriet Frank as Planners.

The two new additions form part of the firm’s strategy for growth, which has recently seen it take larger premises in Nottingham to accommodate its planned expansion.

Rebecca brings with her three years’ experience within the planning and development sector and she is looking forward to working across the firm’s national portfolio of clients which includes national names such as JD Wetherspoons, PureGym and Avant Homes.

She said: “I am excited to work with such a driven team and being able to get involved in a vast array of different project across a range of different sectors; the variety of clients and types of work keeps the job really interesting day to day.

“I am also keen to work closely with the urban design team too and understanding more about that area of the business. nineteen47 is a young and growing company, which I am really pleased to be a part of.”

Harriet, who is also a chartered surveyor, joins the firm from the North York Moors National Park Authority where she gained extensive experience of a range of heritage and conservation issues.

She said: “What attracted me to nineteen47 is the company ethos and its highly skilled team; I am looking forward to being a part of its plans for growth over the coming months. I am currently studying part-time towards a Masters degree in architectural technology and design, so I am excited about working with the design team moving forwards too.”

Tom Collins said the new recruits formed an important part of the firm’s upcoming plans for expansion.

He said: “Since starting the business three years ago, we have experienced year-on-year growth thanks to our highly skilled and dedicated team of planners and urban designers. Rebecca and Harriet are both extremely talented professionals and we are delighted to welcome them to the team.”

The firm has recently had its success recognised with a prestigious industry award, scooping Small Planning Consultancy of the Year at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) awards in the East Midlands.
