Leading planning and urban design consultancy nineteen47 has been named among the country’s best after scooping a prestigious industry award.

The firm, which has offices in York and Nottingham, was named Small Planning Consultancy of the Year at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) East Midlands Awards ceremony held last week (26 September), fighting off stiff competition from across the region.

Jamie Pyper, Director at nineteen47, said: “We could not be more delighted to have won this award; it is testament to the fantastic team we have built and their commitment to delivering a really exceptional service to our clients.

“Since starting the business nearly four years ago, we have experienced year-on-year growth, which we attribute not only to the quality of service our clients can rely on, but also our ability to build important relationships throughout the industry which allow us to achieve excellent results.

“We work across the UK, not just in the East Midlands and Yorkshire where our offices are located, for a whole range of clients within a number of different sectors and we are very proud that the hard work the entire team consistently puts in has been recognised through this award.

“We have plans for further growth over the coming months and years – we have recently moved into larger premises to accommodate this, so this is a really exciting time for nineteen47.”

The firm now employees 11 staff across its offices in York and Nottingham, with 5 of those working within the planning team.
Tom Collins (Associate Director) added: “We have worked very hard to create a genuinely friendly and supportive culture within the business, where our staff are given the opportunity to work flexibly and develop their interests and skills – we believe this award recognises this and showcases how we stand apart within the industry.”
