James Petherick and Chris Dadds will bring new breadth of services

BRISTOL, 27 March 2017 – JLL has made two director-level appointments that will bring a new breadth of expertise to the company’s residential development services in the South and Wales region.

Chris Dadds has joined as a director in the planning team, specialising in residential planning advice, and will be based in Bristol and Exeter. He joins from Peter Brett Associates.

James specialises in the sale and acquisition of residential development land and advising developers on the financial viability of housing projects. Chris will be offering strategic planning advice to developers and landowners, seeking the allocation of land for residential use and securing planning permissions.
