The National Trust's planning team (Karin Taylor front, in pink)
The National Trust has appointed Kim Miller as land use planning adviser for the East Midlands.
Karin Taylor, head of land use planning at the organisation, told Planning that the appointment was part of a more general expansion of the planning team.
She said that the expansion of her team was the result of the increasing influence of the trust in planning issues, as well as a rise in the number of planning applications being submitted.
Miller is due to join the organisation next week. She is currently senior policy planner at Cheltenham Borough Council. She previously worked at Bristol City Council in roles relating to place-shaping and strategic planning.
A chartered town planner, she gained a MA in town planning from the University of the West of England in 2008.
