We have appointed our first apprentice as we continue to invest to support clients and expansion ambitions.


Welcome to Charly Wilson (pictured centre), who joins as an apprentice planner based at our Wynyard office. There she will assist director Stephen Litherland and the team with office management and administrative duties as well as working on our growing workload of planning applications and planning statements for residential and commercial clients.


She will also be combining her professional responsibilities while studying for a RTPI accredited Town Planning Degree and Masters course at Sheffield Hallam University as part of her five-year long apprenticeship training with Hedley Planning Services.


Stephen said it was important to support the careers of young planners: “This is our first apprenticeship and will expose Charly to professional practice and new schools of thought as she develops her skills and supports us. The more young people pursue planning apprenticeships, the more they can strengthen their ability to develop and grow as successful and influential future planners.”
