Pegasus Group appoints planning director
Leading national consultancy Pegasus Group has added further strength to its northern regions with the appointment of an experienced Senior Director.
Sandra Manson has joined the team from professional services firm WYG Group where she was planning director and will lead on projects at Pegasus Group’s offices across the north east.
With extensive experience in various planning fields including residential, commercial, sport, recreation and leisure, Sandra’s past work includes the promotion of schemes through the development plan process as well as through planning applications in the shorter term.
Sandra said: “I am delighted to join Pegasus Group at a time when the north of the country is enjoying such a sustained period of economic growth.
“Pegasus Group is an ambitious company with a real commitment to regional strength and expertise, and I am excited to be part of the next chapter of the vision.”
Sandra left school at 16 and got a job as a temporary filing clerk in the planning department of Newcastle City Council. With encouragement and mentoring from a senior planner there, she worked her way up over eight years, attaining a planning degree and going on to become a head planner in industry.
Pegasus Group has more than 290 skilled and experienced staff operating from 12 offices across the UK. The company’s services span the entire project process from planning through to design and delivery, specialising in planning, design, environment, economics and transport.
