Kathryn Moran has joined DPP, the independent national planning consultancy, as a senior planner in its Leeds office.
Originally from Leeds, the former Roundhay School pupil, who took a degree in Town & Regional Planning at Leeds Metropolitan University has returned to the city following spells working at a number of London councils.
“I’m pleased to be back in the city and delighted to be working for DPP,” says Kathryn. “I will be involved in a number of areas including education and commercial schemes and believe that my experience with London councils such as Lambeth and Westminster and knowledge of a wide range of planning applications and legislation will be very beneficial in my new role.”
These thoughts are echoed by Michelle Bath, Director at DPP’s Leeds office at 2 Wellington Place in Leeds. “We are delighted that Kathryn has joined us,” says Michelle. ““DPP has a strong client focus and places emphasis on adding value, innovation, professionalism and providing solutions to achieve a successful outcome so Kathryn’s experience and insight of the public sector side will be invaluable, especially in relation to our growing workload in the education sector.”
DPP is currently working on a variety of high profile projects and has a strong track record with successful planning permissions achieved already this year in the retail and education sectors. In addition to its Leeds office, DPP has offices in Cardiff, Manchester, London and Newcastle upon Tyne.
