Osian Roberts has joined independent national planning consultancy DPP as principal planner in its Cardiff office at 28 Cathedral Road.
Originally from Swansea, Osian has a degree in City and Regional Planning from Cardiff University and joins DPP from another Cardiff consultancy.
“I’m very excited to be working for DPP,” says Osian. “A great deal of my experience is in the residential sector, which fits well with DPP’s growing workload, but I will also be involved in areas such as regeneration and commercial property as well, which is one of the reasons I joined the company. Cardiff is a vibrant, expanding city with interesting challenges around the provision of housing and infrastructure so planning is key to its growth.”
Gareth Hooper, CEO of DPP, supports Osian’s view: “We are very pleased that Osian has joined us. His expertise in the residential sector is key for us as we expand there, but his interest in the commercial and regeneration areas gives him a well-rounded view of planning which is vital in a constantly developing city like Cardiff.”
When not working, Osian 33, who lives in Heath, Cardiff, enjoys running. To read more visit – http://jobs.planningresource.co.uk/article/outside-interest-long-distance-running/
