His wealth of experience includes working on a variety of projects including listed buildings, master planning large-scale residential housing developments, designing barn conversions, student accommodation, hotels and schools.

“We are delighted to welcome Oliver to our planning and design team,” said Stuart Thomas, partner and head of planning at Berrys.

“He will be leading our design department and working alongside our planning team on a wide range of projects from new housing developments to commercial properties and barn conversions.

“These are exciting times for the business. Our planning and design team has increased substantially in the last few years to meet the growing demand for our services and we are looking forward to moving into our new, larger office on Shrewsbury Business Park mid-April which will give us room to further expand and develop our business,” Stuart added.
