Midlands consultancy expands with senior planner hire
Planning | News
Leading consultancy Marrons Planning is growing its presence in Worcestershire with the appointment of senior planner Reiss Sadler, following a significant uplift in demand for planning services in the county.
With more than seven years’ experience working with Wychavon District Council as a senior planning officer, the move to Marrons Planning will see Reiss support house builders, land promoters and landowners in the area to secure planning permission for key developments.
Specialising in residential development, five-year housing land supply, site appraisal and promotion, Reiss has a vast knowledge of planning policy, having been heavily involved in development plan preparation, supporting and leading on a variety of topics and in the production of evidence base documents, while also supporting communities with neighbourhood planning.
Reiss said: “I love the variety involved in planning; no two projects are the same. I also feel privileged to be able to deal with opportunities and challenges that can shape places and contribute to the resolution of real-world issues, which impact large proportions of society, such as the national housing crisis.
“I am looking forward to using the knowledge and experience I have gained in the public sector to assist clients in realising their development ambitions, particularly in relation to site appraisals and promotion where I can utilise my five-year housing land supply specialism and wider development plan process understanding to achieve the best possible outcome in a timely manner.”
Reiss will be based at the firm’s Stratford-upon-Avon hub, but will be working with clients nationally. Reiss joins following a string of appointments by Marrons Planning, including planning director David Fovargue, Simon Macklen as director of economics and urban design expert Alex Craggs.
Gary Stephens, partner and town planning consultant at Marrons Planning, said: “We take a lot of pride in our local authority understanding and expertise across the consultancy, and Reiss’ experience will certainly bolster this pool of experience.
“We have significant growth plans in the business, and Reiss will help support our growing client base across Worcestershire, we are thrilled to have him on board.“
Marrons is a multi-service development consultancy backed by the experience of working for local authorities, extensive market intel and connections across the industry - from planning offices and private landowners to housebuilders and retailers.
