The firm said that the new staff have been taken on due to a continuous increase in activity in the North West and Yorkshire.

Hard, a chartered planner, joins the firm from rival consultancy CDN Planning, where he was in an equivalent role.

He has a masters degree in urban planning from Oxford Brookes University.

Joanne Oldfield joins as a planner in the Leeds office. She is currently undertaking a PhD in Sustainability and has a MA in Town and Regional Planning.
