Planning consultancy Marrons Planning has announced two promotions

Planning experts David Pendle and Gary Stephens, have been promoted to partner and also take an equity share in legal and professional services group Ampa.

Specialising in strategic land promotion, David Pendle has been with Marrons Planning for three years, securing multiple land allocations for strategic developments and planning for around 700 homes on immediate sites in that time, including a mixture of market and affordable housing.

Gary Stephens is a town planning consultant with more than 20 years’ experience, working with national and regional developers and landowners to secure planning permission, or the allocation of their land for development.

Brian Mullin, partner and head of Marrons Planning, said: “We are delighted to have David and Gary join the membership and formalise their leadership positions at Marrons Planning with myself and Andy Gore. Both are first class practitioners. We are privileged to have them as colleagues and they will continue to contribute towards our growing reputation in the market place.

Over the past year, we have seen significant growth necessitated by increased demand from existing and new clients. We have launched new services areas, in socio-economics and urban design, to complement our existing service lines. We have welcomed multiple new experts into our exceptionally talented team. All of this serves to increase the quality of service and depth of expertise for our client base.

Marrons Planning is a strategically critical part of the Ampa. There are fantastic development opportunities available to our people and we have demonstrated that eligibility for membership is not limited to the legal profession. Together with Andy Gore, we look forward to continuing to work with David and Gary as part of a strong and growing group in Marrons Planning.

All brands across Ampa are recruiting lateral hires and teams.
