Consultancy Iceni Projects has appointed Stuart Walburn director of its London planning team.
According to the firm, Walburn, who moved from Capita ESA, will undertake a full range of planning-related services with a central London focus, including the production of site planning appraisals, submitting and negotiating planning applications and advising on planning policy and planning law implications, including Section 106 and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charges.
“We are seeing more confidence,” Walburn told Planning. “Developers are wanting to do new schemes whereas before we were doing lots of amendments to schemes and renewal of applications.
“There is a new wave of optimism in the market with people working schemes from afresh. That's why I'm here - to develop and help clients secure new permissions to get on and do stuff.”
