Consultancy Tibbalds is looking to expand in response to increased demand for its services on large development projects, mainly in London and the South East of England.

It is advertising for a development planner to work on planning applications for clients and a spatial development planner for planning applications and neighbourhood plans.

Sue Rowlands, director at Tibbalds told Planning: “There are fewer firms bringing urban design and planning together so we have become increasingly niche, and we have been turning away work recently.

“Placemaking is something that is a growth area for us, and we have a lot of work on neighbourhood plans.”

The spatial planner would work on policy writing and mapping in order to make the most of regeneration opportunities in neighbourhood plan areas, she said.

Another major area of growth has been on developing large planning applications in the capital for major architects.

The development planner role will involve working alongside in house urban designers and architects to provide statutory planning advice on masterplanning and regeneration projects.
