Life at DPP

Richard Purser, Associate Director

I came to DPP because of its reputation as a straight-talking, commercially focused consultancy that appealed to my own approach to planning and development. In my time here it has provided me with the opportunity to create a client base, to grow professionally, and to give back through sharing this knowledge and experience with new graduates.

Nicola Waller, Planner

I joined DPP as an Assistant Planner and I’ve been able to develop my planning knowledge by working on a variety of projects across all sectors, from managing smaller projects through to inputting on major development schemes.

Lee Fulcher, Assistant Planner

Since joining DPP on a temporary placement, to starting a full-time graduate position once I have completed my Masters degree, the company have provided me with a great deal of guidance, help and support at the very start of my career as a planner.
