Michael Calder has been promoted from associate director to director at Essex consultancy Phase 2 Planning.
According to the firm, Calder has experience in both the private and public sector and has previously worked for Strutt and Parker LLP & Capita Symonds before joining Phase 2 in 2012.
Phase 2 said that Calder “has acted for a range of clients and managed a varied portfolio of projects covering the full range of planning matters including guiding proposals through the complex planning application and appeal process, enforcement and local plan promotion”.
He has provided evidence at inquiries and local plan examinations.
Calder said: “When I first entered into the planning industry, you had to explain to people what you did, but now everyone recognises what the industry does, and how much it affects everyone’s day to day life. I am proud to be a part of an industry that is now recognised as making a difference to how we shape our communities”.
