Lancashire planning consultancy PWA promotes associate to planning director

North West planning consultancy PWA Planning has appointed associate Dan Hughes to the position of planning director.

Dan joined the firm as a senior planner nine years ago, not long after the consultancy was founded by Paul and Stella Walton.

With more than 15 years’ experience in town planning, Dan has developed specialist expertise in the renewable energy, residential, sports and commercial sectors, gaining planning consent for hundreds of projects.

In his new position as planning director, Dan will also oversee the wider team’s management of projects, helping clients navigate the planning system and driving client service across the firm.

Stella Walton, director of PWA Planning, said: “Dan has been instrumental to our success, making a vital contribution to our service standards and consistently delivering outstanding planning outcomes for our clients. 

“His promotion is thoroughly deserved and I’m sure he will continue to play a leading role at PWA helping our clients to get development moving.”

Dan, who lives near Chorley, said: “I’ve been on an amazing journey with PWA, growing personally and professionally. I’m delighted to have gained this promotion and look forward to helping the practice as we enter our next phase of growth.”

A full member of the Royal Town Planning Institute, Daniel also holds a Masters in Town Planning from University of Manchester.

His project highlights include gaining planning for developments including the Ingol Golf Course redevelopment for Preston North End, Blackpool Football Club’s training facility and Foresters Hall, a 22-storey tower block in Preston.
