Property consultancy strengthens Ashby planning team with four appointments

A property consultancy has strengthened its planning team in Ashby after making four appointments.

Fisher German has welcomed John Nicol as a planner, Kerry Andrews as an assistant planner, and Isabelle Holliday and Jabu Phiri as graduate planners.

John has more than four-and-a-half years’ experience in planning, originally beginning his career in the public sector before moving into the private sector.

In his last role, John specialised in renewable energy projects, obtaining planning permission and carrying out pre and post-planning approval project management.

Kerry joins the firm after spending more than four years working in the public sector, specialising in planning policy and supporting the development of the authority’s local plan.

Isabelle is welcomed to the firm after studying Human Geography at the Manchester Metropolitan University and a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Sheffield. Jabu joins after studying English at the University of Liverpool followed by a postgraduate degree in planning at the University of Manchester.

The expansion comes as Fisher German looks to not only respond to increasing client demand but expand its presence across the Midlands.

John said: “I’m extremely pleased to join Fisher German at what is an incredibly interesting time for the planning sector. The firm has a very strong reputation and offers a wide range of property services and expertise, meaning working here exposes you to a great range of work and clients.

“My role primarily involves working on infrastructure projects mainly covering water, waste, and power. It is an interesting time to be a planner, particularly in relation to the changing legislation around Biodiversity Net Gain.

“It is great to be practising at a time when the operations of the profession are changing quite significantly in this regard and building an understanding of what this will mean for the delivery of development and for our clients in the future is important.”

Kerry said: “Fisher German has a fantastic planning team with a strong work ethic. Everyone works together to do a good job for clients, which is excellent to be part of. I’m working in strategic planning on a variety of different projects, of all scales.

“Planning plays a huge part in the delivery of new housing, and the next year or two will be very interesting in terms of the new planning regulations being introduced by government.”

Liberty Stones, Head of Planning at Fisher German, said: “We are delighted to welcome four new members of the planning team to Fisher German, further strengthening the services we provide to our clients.

“There is a significant need for both housebuilding to meet housing targets and large-scale infrastructure projects, and we are well-placed to support the delivery of these.”
