Jayne Norris, director, Edgars said: “I’m proud of my team, who we continue to develop through training and the opportunity to work across a diverse range of projects. We always aim to make clients feel nurtured and respected so that they have a positive planning and development experience. We will continue to work in this way for the next ten years and beyond!”

Edgars, the Oxfordshire-based planning consultancy, celebrated 10 years in business and its new office move to Witney, with a party for more than 100 clients, staff, fellow consultants and many more on Monday March 5 2018.

Edgars has been run as a planning consultancy by Jayne Norris since 2007 where she started from her kitchen table. Using her thirty years’ planning experience, which included twenty years working in local government at South Oxfordshire District Council and West Oxfordshire District Council, Edgars is still run today with Jayne’s ethos which is to “Care More”.

Edgars has seen year on year growth with a 50% increase in turnover seen in the last year. It is now a 10-strong team of expert planners working across a whole range of impressive and successful projects, including Colleges and Schools such as Radley College and Marlborough College, developers such as Rectory Homes and Empire Homes, Estates such as Great Tew Estate & Heythorp Park, and HNWIs.

The company recently moved into stunning new offices at The Old Bank in Witney, befitting Edgars’ ethos and type of innovative projects on which the team works. It has also refreshed its brand identity to reflect its evolution.

In 2014 Edgars was awarded Smarter Planning Champions status by Planning Portal, a result of the firm’s continued desire to push for modern and sustainable development. Also Edgars is the only independent small consultancy that is part of the Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) Trailblazer Group, which was set up with a Government backed proposal in principle to develop a Degree Apprenticeship for Chartered Town Planners in England.

Jayne Norris, director, Edgars said: “We were thrilled to see so many old and new faces at our ten year anniversary party in our smart new offices. Our continued growth is because we are ambitious, for our clients, our staff and our company. We are built on great people, commercial acumen, modern thinking and local authority insight. I’m proud of my team, who we continue to develop through training and the opportunity to work across a diverse range of projects. We always aim to make clients feel nurtured and respected so that they have a positive planning and development experience. We will continue to work in this way for the next ten years and beyond!”

The entertainment was provided by Octave, an eight part acapella group based in London and the caterers were Church Green Kitchen, Witney.
