Turley Reading appointees

Planning consultancy Turley has expanded its Reading office with three new senior recruits.

Tim Burden (pictured right) will join the firm after three years as a director at rival consultancy Boyer, and has more than 15 years’ experience working in the Thames Valley.

He has also worked for consultancy Barton Willmore and began his career as a planning officer at Reading Borough Council.

He has a master’s degree in town and country planning from the University of Reading.

Donna Palmer (centre right) and David Wetherill (far left) have both joined Turley as senior planners.

Palmer was also formerly at Boyer and has a master’s degree in urban and regional planning from the University of Westminster, plus a bachelors in human geography from University of Reading.

Wetherill joins from Wokingham Borough Council where he served as principal planner.

Peter Lawson (centre left), office director at Turley's Reading office, said the appointments were required due to a growing workload in the Reading office, which opened its doors earlier this year.

He said the firm was already advising clients including Pinewood Studios and the University of Reading
