CAD Architects in Truro has set up its own planning consultancy service.
Laura Potts, a chartered town planner with over 19 years’ experience, has been appointed to head up this new service for CAD Architects’ clients.
Commenting on the appointment, CAD Architects’ MD, Mark Dawes, said: “The practice has been growing steadily and we have built a highly talented team who are able to handle a wide range of projects.
“With the growing importance and complexity of planning issues, we have taken the bold step of setting up our own planning consultancy, so that we can offer the very best advice on these matters to our clients. There are very few chartered architecture practices in the south west who can offer this service and we are delighted to welcome Laura into the business.”
Potts’ previous role was as a principal development officer at Cornwall Council. She has a degree in architecture and is a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute.
Her work has given her a very deep understanding of the planning challenges in the local area. “This is a very exciting time to be joining CAD Architects, as it continues to win a number of high-profile new commissions,” she said.
“I am looking forward to using my skills and experience to advise the team and their clients. My goal is to deliver the best planning outcomes for our clients, so that I can help the business to continue to grow and develop.”
