Made up of directors Henry Burton, Joanna Gabrilatsou and Charles Calvert, associate Jamie Cardwell, senior surveyor Hannah Partington and surveyor Zoe Peace, the team’s combined expertise extends across all sectors, size and complexity of developments to ensure delivery.

Jeff Pearey, lead director Yorkshire and North East at JLL, said: “This is an exciting an exciting enhancement to our regional business which ensures that we are able to deliver the best planning and development advice on schemes across the region.

“The team’s focus is to deliver independent specialist advice, supported by early stage research and strategic insight to help ensure client’s proposals receive planning permission and their development opportunities deliver the best returns.”

JLL already has a strong planning and development track record having advised on some of the largest and complex projects in Yorkshire and the North East, notably advising the Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust on its Leeds Teaching Hospital surplus estate strategy which includes the Grade I Listed Gilbert Scott Building and Grade II Listed Old Medical School and the delivery of a 6,000 residential unit scheme in North Lincolnshire.
