For an employee at Cambridgeshire surveying and planning practice Barford + Co, the New Year has got off to a very good start indeed. Simon Tindle, Senior Planner at Barford + Co, has been promoted to Associate Director at the firm, having only joined the company just over a year ago.

Simon, who joined Barford + Co in October 2015 from Northampton Borough Council, will take on the role of Associate Director for Planning with immediate effect, bringing the total number of Associates within the firm to three.

Simon, an experienced Town Planner, previously occupied a planning role at Sunderland City Council and brought a wealth of town planning and development management experience to the firm when he joined its planning department in 2015.

Commenting on Simon’s promotion, Martin Page, Director of Planning, said: “Simon’s promotion to Associate Director is very well deserved; in just over a year since he started working with us Simon has made a significant contribution to our planning services, successfully securing planning permission for a range of developments comprising both residential and commercial.

“Simon’s experience at two large local authorities combined with his commercial awareness has made him an invaluable asset to the team and clients and we wish him every success in his new role.

“His promotion follows a year of successes for Barford + Co in 2016; Associate Director Howard Westgate qualified as a Chartered Surveyor and Negotiator James Price passed his Diploma in Estate Management. Now, Simon’s New Year promotion looks set to kick off another year of celebration for us.”

Simon Tindle said: “I am delighted to be starting a new chapter in my career at Barford + Co as Associate Director in the Planning team. It’s an exciting time to be involved in Planning with so much development planned in East Anglia over the coming years and I look forward to working closely with developers and associates to make these plans a reality.”
