Adams Hendry directors

Winchester-based planning consultancy Adams Hendry is expanding its team in response to a growing workload.

The firm is recruiting for senior and principal planners to join its consultancy, which specialises in infrastructure work.

Its move comes a year after a management buy-out at the firm, which currently has 23 staff working on projects across England.

Philip Rowell, director at Adams Hendry (pictured right), told Planning: “As a large proportion of our work for clients is in respect of long term infrastructure schemes, there was not a significant dip in the amount of our work during the recession.  

“However, with the economy picking up this has had an effect and our workload is increasing, particularly in the residential and commercial sectors". 

Rowell added that the firm wanted to recruit at least two fresh faces, but that “if we get strong candidates then we could recruit more”.

Rowell, along with two other directors – Andy Blaxland and Emma Barnett, bought out the practice’s two previous owners in a planned succession last year.
