Growth for Turley in Scotland

We have strengthened our Scotland offering with a senior promotion in the planning team and a series of new appointments across the planning and heritage departments.

The senior planning team has been bolstered with the promotion of Kate Donald to associate director. Kate, who has been with us since 2015, will focus on business development and continued project delivery in her new role.

In response to increased demand and a growing market we have further strengthened our planning team with the appointment of Mary McCabe and Alex Mead as planner and assistant planner respectively.

Hannah Tweedie has also joined our heritage service as senior consultant in Edinburgh.

Hannah previously spent eight years as a cultural heritage consultant and is an expert in assessment for EIAs, historic landscapes and heritage setting issues.

The move follows the appointment of director Catharine Kidd to establish our Scottish heritage presence.

Speaking about the growth, Colin Smith, head of planning Scotland said:

“This expansion allows us to meet the increasing demand for trusted advisors in the Scottish planning and development markets, with current projects including The Johnnie Walker Experience, Gleneagles, the new Institute of Health and Wellbeing and College of Arts for the University of Glasgow and a number of proposals for student accommodation in Edinburgh. We are delighted to welcome Mary and Alex to the team and are looking forward to the year ahead as we continue to work on several high-profile projects across Scotland.”

Catharine Kidd, director, heritage said:

“Our heritage team in Scotland has a strong reputation for providing the expert advice needed to inform development and manage change in the historic environment. This has been demonstrated by the high-profile projects that we are engaged in across Scotland including The IMPACT Centre and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, and the Rosebank Distillery in Falkirk. Hannah’s appointment will enable us to continue providing the highest levels of service to our clients.”
