Stockport based planning consultancy, Broadgrove Planning and Development has strengthened their team with the appointment of a fourth member of staff.
Despite the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the firm has seen sustained growth and increasing volumes of instructions, leading to the appointment of Connor Wigley (pictured) as an Assistant Planning Consultant.
Wigley joins Broadgrove from industrial developers, Gladman, where he spent nearly 2 years working on strategic land issues. Connor will support directors Andy McMullan and Richard Walters in delivering the company’s growth ambitions. This is Broadgrove’s second appointment in recent months, with the Stockport planning consultancy anticipated to double turnover during this financial year, despite the current market conditions.
Director, Andy McMullan, said,
Since establishing Broadgrove in 2018, we have experienced a sustained pattern of growth, and seen large numbers of referrals based on our Director led, commercial approach to planning advice. The appointment of Connor allows us to maintain our level of service and it is great to have him as part of the business.
Despite the well documented market difficulties of the last 6 months we are fortunate to have a strong client base and healthy pipeline of instructions. We will continue to seek out the best talent to support our growth strategy and to provide the high quality of service which our clients expect.”

They are currently advising on more than 12,500 residential units across the UK, for clients, including, Fusion Students, Warrington Housing Association, MLN (Land and Properties) Ltd and North Wales Housing Association.
