Trio Joins East Mids Consultancy To Meet Demand

Marrons | Blog

Following a significant increase in demand for its multidisciplinary services, Marrons has grown its East Midlands teams with a trio of hires.


Heritage director Hannah Hamilton-Rutter, planner Phoebe Conway and assistant planner Joe Ctori have joined the consultancy in Nottingham and Leicester, further expanding its national reach.

With skills in conservation and urban design, and more than 11 years’ experience in the heritage sector, Hannah has joined Marrons from RPS where she directed the group’s built heritage services in its Newark office. Before this, she worked in conservation at both Charnwood and Bedford borough councils.

The move to Marrons will see Hannah working on a national level across a wide range of commercial projects that draw on her expertise in due diligence appraisals, strategic land promotion, development management and listed building consent.

Hannah said: “Joining the heritage team at Marrons is an exciting step in my career, and I’m really looking forward to working with my colleagues to develop their already established presence and reputation for straightforward, commercial heritage advice.

“As well as a strong background across both the public sector and private practice, I hope to bring new perspectives to our practice and our clients’ projects, enabling us to realise great development opportunities and benefits for the historic environment.”

Phoebe has previous experience working in planning consultancy in the Midlands on various projects, as well as working client side for a modular housebuilder covering the region and South West.

She said: “Marrons is a highly regarded planning consultancy with a great reputation. I am looking forward to further developing and diversifying my planning experience while working with small and large housebuilders and developers to unlock sites and deliver high-quality developments across the Midlands.”

Joe has joined the team after completing his studies at the University of Liverpool. In his new role, he will be supporting the team in coordinating planning applications on behalf of national housebuilders and land promoters.

The Nottingham team takes the lead in developing Marrons’ strategic land offering in the region, providing services including securing planning permission for development and promoting greenfield and brownfield land to meet future housing and employment needs.

Andrew Gore, partner at Marrons and head of the consultancy’s Nottingham hub, said: “The market in the East Midlands remains active and there has been a significant increase in demand for our multidisciplinary services due to our high success rate in achieving planning permissions and allocations for our clients.

“We are thrilled to welcome Hannah, Phoebe, and Joe to the team. We have significant growth plans in the business, and all three will help support our ever-expanding client base across the East Midlands. Their invaluable experience and expertise will strengthen the team, and bring new ideas and skills to unlock sites.”
