Independent planning consultancy, Asteer Planning, has welcomed Alice Routledge as equity partner. The Manchester based company was established by managing partner Jon Suckley in April of this year.

Alice, who has worked in the North West market since 2013, joined Asteer in August.  Her promotion to the equity partnership recognises her long term commitment to Asteer and its ambitions for future growth.

Asteer has quickly established itself as part of Manchester’s property scene providing an independent and agile planning advisory service across all sectors including residential, employment and mixed use. The business is advising a wide range of clients including Richborough Estates, Tritax Symmetry, Seddon, P H Properties, Grasscroft, Urbo, Lovell, HBD.

Says Jon Suckley, Managing Partner at Asteer Planning: “I always knew there was a gap in the market for a fresh, independent boutique planning consultancy, but we have been blown away by the speed with which we have grown and the confidence that has been shown by our clients.

Alice is a commercial advisor and an integral part of our team. Her promotion to partner is not only a fantastic recognition of her talents but also acknowledges the growth ambitions of the business”.

Alice’s experience on a range of projects across the North of England will further enhance the company’s position in the market. Alice adds:  “I am delighted to have joined Asteer, and am very much looking forward to the opportunities that will arise and being able to help shape its future growth and success”
