“A fresh, innovative training approach that inspires others to achieve”
“ I found Saxonby very easy to work with during the pre- contract stages at Bridgwater Street, Whitchurch, where they took a very proactive and flexible approach, leading to a painless and quick route from inception to achieving an actual start on site. Saxonby were very professional whilst being a pleasure to work with, we look forward to working with them again in the future”
“We have found Saxonby Land & Planning Services to be a very professional company addressing and assisting us with our project at Bridgewater Street Whitchurch. They assisted us with designing the optimum scheme for the site , offering a mix of houses and apartments that would appeal to the regional Housing Associations for the provision of social housing. We were able to address ecology , design , and archaeological matters calling upon the experience of the Saxonby team , and this resulted in a successful consent being approved. We would certainly be prepared to work with the Saxonby team on future projects.”
Saxonby employee attains Royal Town Planning Institute membership qualification
An employee at Shropshire construction company Saxonby has attained the ultimate town planning qualification.
26-year-old planning consultant Alastair Stewart, who joined the company in 2014, is now qualified as a Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute (MRTPI). The accolade began when he graduated from the University of Sheffield with an RTPI accredited BA (Hons) degree and MPlan (with merit) in urban studies and planning. He then became a licentiate member of the RTPI and finally, following an assessment of professional competence he is now a chartered town planner. The RTPI is the UK's lead body in its sector and the largest planning institute in Europe with over 23,000 members.
Stewart, who heads up the Land & Planning Services business unit within the Saxonby Group, said: “Achieving this qualification is not only a personal milestone in my career but will also enable me, through the RTPI West Midlands’ networking events and forums, to develop leads, contacts and potential new business for Saxonby. My next step is to attain Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor status.”
Commenting on his qualification, Andrew Copson, director at Saxonby, said: “We always aim to identify the training and aspirational needs of our employees and connect those with how the subsequent qualifications can benefit their continuing professional development as well as the business. Attaining chartered status is testament to Alastair’s thirst for knowledge and a desire to deliver the highest quality service to our existing and potential land and planning clients.”
