Blunstone makes CBRE move
Hannah Blunstone has joined the Northern planning & development team at director level, relocating from London as the firm looks to drive the department’s alternative use capabilities.
Blunstone, who will work from both the Leeds and Manchester offices, has been with CBRE for more than a decade and was previously a director in the London and South East team.
She brings more than 15 years’ experience as a chartered town planner across a range of sectors, most recently focusing on life sciences, higher education and student accommodation, film studios, healthcare and mixed use development.
Iain Jenkinson, executive director, CBRE planning & development, said: “We are delighted to welcome Hannah into the northern team.
“She brings a wealth of experience from London and the South East in many of the growth areas we are seeing right now and will add depth to our strategic advice and the project management of major planning applications in these sectors. We look forward to Hannah joining us.”
Blunstone added: “With the government’s focus on the regeneration of northern towns and cities and many transformational projects identified, it is an exciting time to be joining the growing Northern planning & development team.
“I am looking forward to utilising my recent experience in some of the alternative use classes which are key to many large scale regeneration projects.”
