National property consultancy Carter Jonas has promoted partner David Boulton to head up its Northern planning team.

He replaces John Goodwin who has been head of planning in the North since 1996 and who retains a partnership role.

Boulton joined Carter Jonas in 1999 and has been a partner in the planning and development division since 2007. He was previously a planner in local government in Gloucestershire and County Durham.

The Northern planning team operates from offices in Harrogate, Leeds, York and Kendal with agency and development surveyors. The team comprises eight chartered town planners.

Boulton said: “I have been heavily involved in the promotion and management of our business in recent years and I’m delighted to be taking over the reins at this exciting time for the Northern planning team. 

“This will enable a seamless transition for clients and open new opportunities for our multidisciplinary business helping to expand the established planning team yet further across the region.” 

Boulton, who is originally from Staffordshire, has lived in the region for 25 years and is a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute.

He graduated from the University of Wales in Cardiff with a Town Planning degree and a Town and Regional Planning Diploma.
