Tackling the H's & playing detective

This week I have been tackling the H's! I have been working on projects that include a scrap yard in Haringey; an office in Harrow and a Grade II Listed Hospital in Hillingdon. All three presented interesting planning issues and it was my job to advise on the development potential of each site.

I really enjoy getting my teeth into these opportunities as it involves not only planning policy assessment but also taking on a 'detective' role and take a view on whether the site(s) are worth pursuing. The perks of working for Montagu Evans definitely include the variety of work; this ensures that you gain experience in a number of different aspects of planning, which of course is vital when completing your log book during the APC process.
Finally, the young Planners were asked to host a networking evening and invite other young professionals within the property sector. These events are not only a great chance to have a few beers with your colleagues, but also meet other young professionals such as planning lawyers/ developers/ architects etc; all of which are great contacts to have in the world of planning consultancy.
