Butcher was previously a senior planning manager at Persimmon Homes’ south coast team.

Crompton joins from rival consultancy Indigo Planning, where he worked on residential and commercial projects.

Collins arrives from Fisher German, and will focus on residential, commercial and mixed-use developments for private sector clients across the East Midlands. 

Simon Chadwick, head of WYG’s northern planning teams, said the appointments had been made to strengthen the firm's housing development capabilities.
