Consultancy Eden Planning has appointed a new director to join its leadership team.

Altrincham-based Eden Planning has appointed Anna Bensky to its four-strong leadership team.

Town planner Bensky leaves her role as associate director at developer Peel L&P, having spent more than nine years with the company.

According to Eden Planning, during her time at Peel, Bensky helped to deliver the Royal Horticultural Society’s RHS Garden Bridgewater scheme in Manchester.

Becki Hinchliffe, founding director at Eden, said: “Anna’s impressive portfolio showcases her enviable planning experience and adds serious weight to our growing offering.

“Our all-female leadership team is a happy accident; we didn’t aim to establish one but the skills that Anna and Nicole bring to our table really highlight how it’s time to shake up a very male-led industry.”

Eden Planning’s clients include McGoff Construction, Together Money, Bridgewater Canal Company, Peel L&P, Flintshire County Council and Natural England.
