Hedley signals intent with Newcastle base

North East consultancy Hedley Planning has added to its Hexham headquarters with a city centre office, in Maybrook House.

The new operation at the Grainger Street building will provide an additional base for business development, and support a growing volume of city centre work, particularly student living and aparthotels, the firm said.

New roles will be created as Alex Franklin, who will head up the office, builds a team over the next year.

The news comes as several city centre projects, including  approvals at Old Eldon Square, Clayton Street for Panther Properties, and Metropolitan House, are already under way.

Franklin said he will be looking to quickly integrate with other local businesses and added: “We will continue to deliver a quality service to clients across the North East from our Hexham office, but the time is now right to expand with this new office opening.

“Newcastle is a key regional city, and our evolution and expansion seeks to strengthen our business development.

“Our new Grainger Street operation puts us in the perfect location to grow our influence and boost our reputation as a forward-thinking planning consultancy. It’s the start of an exciting new chapter for us, and we are very much looking forward to going from strength-to-strength.”
