Pre­vi­ously a di­rec­tor at GVA with 16 years’ plan­ning con­sul­tancy ex­pe­ri­ence, Mr Har­ri­son has ad­vised on high-pro­file projects such as the Li­brary of Birm­ing­ham, Snowhill of­fice devel­op­ment and the forth­com­ing Tim­ber Yard res­i­den­tial scheme near the Hip­po­drome.

He has also acted for St Mod­wen Homes, se­cur­ing plan­ning per­mis­sion for the rede­vel­op­ment of Stoke City FC’s for­mer sta­dium, the Vic­to­ria Ground.

Also join­ing the busi­ness are as­so­ciate di­rec­tor Ben Rayner and se­nior plan­ner Louise Hins­ley.

Mr Rayner ar­rives from Ar­cadis where he has been ad­vis­ing Homes Eng­land on the rede­vel­op­ment of the City Hospi­tal site to pro­vide 800 homes and acted for Birm­ing­ham de­vel­oper Court Col­lab­o­ra­tion on sev­eral projects, in­clud­ing a stu­dent hous­ing scheme.

He has also pro­vided town cen­tre re­gen­er­a­tion ad­vice to var­i­ous lo­cal author­i­ties and se­cured a wide range of plan­ning per­mis­sions for ma­jor re­tail­ers in­clud­ing Next.

Ms Hins­ley was pre­vi­ously at Nex­tPhase in Can­nock, where she has worked na­tion­ally, pro­vid­ing plan­ning ad­vice to a range of clients, pre­dom­i­nantly in the res­i­den­tial sec­tor.

Re­gional di­rec­tor Adam Ramshaw said: “This a hugely ex­cit­ing time for plan­ning and devel­op­ment con­sul­tancy.

“It’s a key growth area for our busi­ness and I’m de­lighted to wel­come Birm­ing­ham’s new-look team as we ex­pand our na­tion­wide plan­ning propo­si­tion with an in­jec­tion of fan­tas­tic tal­ent.”
