SLR strengthens Planning offering to the UK residential sector

SLR is delighted to announce the arrival of Dr Chris Lyons MRTPI to the UK’s Planning and EIA team. Chris joins SLR from TetraTech where he led the Southampton planning team. Chris’ new role with SLR will be to set up and run a specialist residential planning team supporting clients throughout the country with their development needs, including securing planning permission and strategic land requirements.

Chris also brings with him an experienced team comprising chartered town planners Nick Billington and Laura Black, who both worked with Chris at TetraTech. The team will be based from SLR’s soon to be opened office in the Southampton area.

Alan Mitchell, Head of Planning & ESIA for SLR’s European region states “It’s fantastic to have Chris and team on board. They are well known as one of the go-to consultancy teams in this sector and having them on board significantly strengthens our company’s offering to residential clients and enhances our wider offering to the Built Environment sector. Their arrival coincides with an exciting period of growth in this sector for our team, led by Elle Cass, and also with the opening of our new office on the south coast. SLR extends a very warm welcome to Chris, Nick and Laura.”

Please get in touch if you wish to discuss any opportunities with Chris and his team.
