Planning consultancy Turley strengthens economics capability in London

Planning consultancy Turley has appointed Amy Gilham as an Associate Director to lead its growing economics work in London.

Amy brings to the company 10 years’ economic development experience, having previously worked for edaw/AECOM and Regeneris in central London on a range of instructions, including evaluating the impact of London Fashion Week and portfolio economic impact appraisal work for blue-chip clients such as Segro.

Commenting on her appointment Turley’s London Office Director Michael Lowndes said:

“We are increasingly being asked by our clients to investigate the social and economic impacts of their developments as part of making the case for planning permission. With Amy’s arrival we are now able to offer this service to all our clients across London.”

Richard Laming who heads up Turley’s national economics service adds:

“Amy’s track record in successfully measuring the impacts of property development and investment and helping to promote development in London is exemplary. She is working closely with clients to help them to understand and communicate scheme impacts through the planning process.”

Turley Economics is currently calculating housing need for five of the Thames Gateway authorities, advising on the economic impacts of a £300 million “super hospital” and working on redevelopment projects in North Kensington and West Hampstead. The team is also undertaking CIL and affordable housing viability advice.
