Goadsby expand planning team

Goadsby Commercial have appointed Guy Peirson-Hagger as Planning Manager to their Southampton office to further enhance their client offer. Peter Atfield, Planning Director, heads up the team and will continue to cover the western region. Guy, who has considerable experience in all aspects of town planning and can offer advice on a range of development projects, wil cover the east of the region including Hampshire, East Sussex and Surrey.

Bill Parker, Managing Director of Goadsby Commercial said: ‘We are expanding our planning consultancy service in order to meet the demand we are receiving from new and existing clients. Whilst we have been able to maintain a high level service from our Bournemouth office, the increasing workload generated through our Southampton and Winchester offices has made it necessary to bring in additional expertise. Guy is a most welcome addition to the team and we look forward to growing this important side of our business’.

Guy added ‘The planning system has become increasingly complex. Our USP is that we come from a commercial angle. We know what our clients want and we also understand the market arguments, particularly when it comes to viability and deliverability.’
