International architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has appointed Philip Heaton as Director of Public Realm – a new senior role which will see him spearhead the growth of the practice’s international landscape and public realm team. Philip joins from Cracknell landscape architects, where he was a director. He previously worked at Scott Wilson, Parklife and in the public sector.
To capitalise on the recent growth of its planning team following a series of major project wins, the practice has promoted Adam Ross to Director of Planning and Jeff Nottage to Associate Director of Planning in the UK.
It has also reinforced its Middle East team through the appointment of Sarah Richardson, who joins the practice as an Associate Planner in the firm’s Abu Dhabi office.
Board Director Roger Tustain said: “These appointments will drive our ambitious growth plans for our integrated planning, masterplanning and design service and are a clear sign of our commitment to UK and international clients and our ambition to become the planning and design consultant of choice.
“They will support our wider UK and international growth strategy, increase the size, reach and expertise of our existing teams in response to growing client demand and are evidence of our continued investment in the practice, for our own benefit and clients’ businesses.
“The new positions will enhance our integrated planning, masterplanning and design offer, which is relevant to all our global markets.
“In the UK, the policy agenda on Localism will place a greater emphasis on good design in the planning decision making process and, for example, Philip’s appointment will directly boost our expertise in local engagement.
“Internationally, evolving and established markets are developing planning policy frameworks to plan and control development. We are well placed to increase our market share across all markets.”
