Development consultancy moves into York

A PLANNING and development consultancy is looking to establish a foothold in Yorkshire and the North East after opening an office in York.

Hourigan Connolly has opened a branch in Blake House, Blake Street, appointing a York-based surveyor to head the operation.

The firm was established in 2009 by Marc Hourigan and Daniel Connolly, both former directors for national developers.

With the opening of the York Office, the pair say they are now seeking to establish a major foothold in Yorkshire and North East for Hourigan Connolly.

Already employing a team of seven staff at its Manchester office, the firm has now appointed York resident Laura Richardson, an RICS-qualified planning and development surveyor, to support Yorkshire and North East-based clients.

Ms Richardson, who has private and public sector experience across the North of England having previously worked for CB Richard Ellis and Knight Frank in Manchester and Leeds respectively, and more recently in the Homes and Communities Agency’s Yorkshire and the Humber Team, said: “I am thrilled that Hourigan Connolly has chosen York, a city that I am proud to call home, for its Yorkshire and North East base.

“We have built a fantastic reputation of getting positive results for our clients nationally from our Manchester Office and we now look forward to achieving great things for a number of organisations this side of the Pennines.”
