Planning consultancy Boyer Planning has announced plans to expand its teams across its five offices to cope with an increase in workload.

The firm said the move was due to an increase in its residential workload, driven in part, it said, by government initiatives such as the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme.

Business has also picked up in the commercial and mixed-use sector, the company said.

To cope with increasing demand, Boyer Planning has hired 30 new members of staff since 2013.

It is now seeking to fill both junior and senior positions across its network of five offices in Cardiff, Colchester, London, Twickenham and Wokingham.

Managing director Jane Hirst said: “The large number of positions we’re looking to fill is in direct response to the market and our growth strategy, which includes geographic spread, up-skilling and organic growth.”

The company said it is not seeking to open new offices at the moment, but would not rule it out should current growth continue.
