Oxfordshire property consultancy Kemp & Kemp has recruited a new senior planner following growth in residential development fuelled by both the public and private sectors.

Jon Waite has joined from consultancy Jacobs and will tackle development planning, site promotion and planning strategy, project co-ordination and site appraisals.

Waite told Planning: “There is lots going on in the region across sectors but especially residential. This is due to the improving economy.

“However, a lot of authorities are putting together strategic housing market assessments with the objective of assessing housing need and that is pushing requirements.”

Kemp & Kemp represents private individuals, companies, interest groups, local government and public sector bodies.
