Planning consultants Turley have announced plans to open a second regional office to serve the City of Derry-North West, and the creation of three new jobs in Northern Ireland.
The national planning and design consultancy currently has offices in 12 locations across the UK, including an office in Belfast led by office director, Michael Gordon.
The new City of Derry~North West office is to be led by fellow director, Brian Kelly, and the lead planner on several major projects including the Titanic Quarter, Odyssey Millennium project and Altnagelvin Hospital’s Radiotherapy Unit.
This office investment will be followed by the appointment of three new posts.
Director of engagement John Davison said: “We have adapted to a reformed planning system that now sees local councils taking responsibility for local policy, and councillors in control of decision making. Planning has become increasingly local and community focussed.
“The emphasis now is on being engaged with local communities, locally elected representatives and to deliver economic growth opportunities. Our new office and these three new posts are a strategic response to maintain our growth and to service our clients.”
