A warm welcome to our new associate planner and congratulations to our directors

It has been an exciting couple of months at Plainview Planning and the latest new development is that we are thrilled to welcome Bex Dorey-Verhaeg to the fold as our new Associate Planner.

Bex brings with her a wealth of experience both from the public and private sector and with her background in architecture she has a keen eye for design and detail. She has been instrumental in securing planning permission for a number of large scale residential schemes in and around the south west and has experience across a number of sectors. If you are seeking planning support on housing or commercial projects then contact Bex via and see how she can best assist and receive a fee quote for her expertise on your development scheme.

Promotions at Plainview Planning

We have also been delighted to see the promotion of Catherine Hoyte and Alexandra Eatough to Director level at Plainview Planning Ltd recently.

Our MD Ian Woodward-Court had this to say about the promotion:

“It’s no secret, but to get a promotion become indispensable. That’s what Cath and Alex are. Smart, focussed and not afraid to tell me when I’m wrong.

They have laser focus when it comes to planning policy, legislation and politics. But they’ve also been a vital sounding board with our other ventures, including:
(1) Land sales of 300+ homes via Context Land ;
(2) Ongoing promotion of 50ha of strategic land also via Context Land; and
(3) the acquisition and regeneration of 150,000 sqft of office and industrial space in Cirencester via Watermoor Point.

This is real world experience, where WE have been the client taking our own risks. Feeling the nausea of when things are going wrong, and the elation when it goes right.

This practical experience allows Cath and Alex to empathise with our amazing clients, and provide unique insights into managing and mitigating planning risk.

So here’s to Alex and Cath – driving Plainview forward into the next chapter.”

We are really excited about where our business is headed – watch this space for more interesting developments over the coming months.

A new office for Plainview Planning in Cirencester

And in the meantime – our new office at Watermoor Point is now open! We can’t wait to welcome new and existing clients to discuss projects and also to give them the chance to see this most iconic building, which used to be the former Mitsubishi Motors UK headquarters.
