Edgars planning consultancy promotes two planners

19th September 2023

We’re pleased to share that we have promoted Alex Edge and Iain Summerwood as part of our continued growth strategy focused on delivering inspiring futures and places for our clients while nurturing and training our talent.

Alex Edge has been promoted to associate and Iain Summerwood has been promoted to principal planner. Alex started his career at Leicester City Council and joined Edgars in 2016 as a graduate planner. With an incredible eye for detail, Alex specialises in development management, large urban design projects and heritage proposals.

Iain joined Edgars in 2019 after starting his planning career in the public sector, working within a borough council west of London. Following this, he gained experience working primarily on residential and educational projects, within a multi-disciplinary built environment firm. Iain’s client management and support for both senior and junior colleagues make him a valuable member of the team.

Jayne Norris, Director at Edgars, commented: “We’re very proud of Alex and Iain – the promotions are well deserved and a reflection of their dedication to client projects, the profession and our company values. We extend our warmest congratulations as they continue their exciting careers with Edgars.”

Alex Edge, Associate, said: “I’m thrilled with my promotion to associate, which comes as I celebrate seven years with Edgars! I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities and progression with the business, including support through my master’s degree, becoming a Chartered Town Planner and taking a leading role in delivering a diverse range of exciting and ambitious projects. Edgars both cultivates and rewards growth and as an associate, I look forward to furthering my professional development, supporting junior colleagues and of course focusing on providing the best expertise and service to our clients.”

Iain Summerwood, Principal Planner, said: “I’m delighted to take the next step in my planning career here at Edgars. The support and encouragement from the wonderful team have been invaluable to me, and I look forward to continuing to advocate for the quality of the built environment, the quality of service provided to our clients, and the quality of our collaborations and communications with local planning authorities.”
