Iceni Projects has today announced the appointment of Nick Ireland as a Director in the Strategic Planning team.

Nick joins Iceni Projects from GL Hearn where he led the Economic Consulting Team. He has a strong track record of advising both public and private sector organisations on strategic growth opportunities and providing robust technical evidence on housing and economic development issues.

Nick has significant experience advising local authorities on strategic growth opportunities including urban extensions, large scale new settlements, strategic infrastructure and the more readily deliverable strategic land sites. He is also a recognised expert witness on housing need and five year land supply and has led preparation of strategic housing market assessments across England.

Nick Ireland, Director, Strategic Planning, Iceni Projects, said:

“Iceni’s Strategic Planning team pride themselves on their ability to marry planning and political insight, and to be at the forefront in identifying and promoting opportunities for both large-scale new settlements and urban extensions, as well strategic land sites. I look forward to working with our private and public sector clients to provide the strength and depth of advice they have come to expect from Iceni Projects.”

Ian Anderson, chief executive, Iceni Projects, said:

“Nick will be a valuable addition to our Strategic Planning team. His understanding of housing and economics reinforces our ability to be a dynamic ‘one stop shop’ for all aspects of strategic land promotion.

“Developers need to know they are not only picking the right site, but also the right political and economic context – the art and science of planning. Nick, and Iceni’s wider Strategic Planning team, will continue to lead from the front in this respect.”
