Behind the scenes

As many of you may have already seen announced, we’re excited that our regional growth strategy has continued with the opening of a new office in Liverpool – our first location in the North West and our fifth nationally.

The office is being headed up by divisional director Chris Pollett, who was influential in the successful opening and establishment of our Nottingham office in 2021.

Having been at Rodgers Leask since 1996, we recently bid farewell to director Lawrence Pacey who has since begun a new adventure in New Zealand.

Lawrence’s dedication through the years leaves plenty to be proud of, which we’ve reflected on in more detail on our website here:

On site

We have reached the end of what has been a fantastic five years acting as the Travel Plan Co-ordinator at the Vistry Group’s Sancerre Grange, a 148-plot residential development in Eccleshall, Staffordshire.

Many hours have been spent on site discussing all things sustainable travel with residents, distributing bus timetables, travel packs, cycle maintenance kits and sustainable travel newsletters.

What lessons did we learn? Find out here:

We love it when a good plan comes together, and so does Mansfield District Council after recently granting outline approval for the Pleasley Hill large sustainable urban extension at its planning committee.

We have undertaken a multi-disciplinary role on the project, providing transport planning, civil engineering and environmental services.

A project local to our Nottingham office, we can’t wait to see the progress on site at Bilborough College after hearing that Nottingham City Council has granted full planning permission for the proposed extension.

In the community

Signs of winter are certainly more evident in the last week or so, but we made sure to make the most of the better weather in July at our annual golf day at Beeston Fields in Nottingham.

We’d like to say another thank you to our clients and friends in industry that joined us on the day and made it a success.

Congratulations to the winning team hosted by Alistair Mackenzie, including Philip Wright, Wayne Organ and Jonny Collins!

We too have some talented golfers in our ranks, as proven by the Rodgers Leask team led by Stewart Friel winning the Nottingham City Business Club golf day this year.

Roll on summer 2023 for more fun in the sun!
