Brian Sloggett, managing director at GL Hearn, said: “We are now seeing clients pushing into regional markets to a greater extent and the demand for our services is increasing accordingly.

“We took the strategic decision to invest heavily in skilled specialists across all our areas of operation.”

Carfae works on large projects requiring environmental impact assessments and has a master’s degree in landscape, planning and management, town and country planning and landscape from the University of Manchester.

Kettle joined GL Hearn in 2011 as an assistant planner and manages projects with several councils and infrastructure bodies.

She has both a master’s and bachelor’s degree in urban studies and planning from the University of Sheffield.
