Delva Patman Redler has strengthened its South West operations with the opening of a new office in Bristol and the appointment of Chris Harris to head a dedicated South West-led team.
Neighbourly Matters expert Chris Harris joins the firm as Salaried Partner. A specialist in daylight and sunlight and rights of lights, Chris has a detailed knowledge of the technical support, planning process and associated legal criteria.
Chris started his career at Delva Patman Redler where he spent 13 years working on a number of large commercial and residential developments across the UK, helping developers maximise the potential of their sites, before moving to TFT where he spent over three years as Technical Partner, leading the Neighbourly Matters team
At Delva Patman Redler, Chris will run the Bristol office, supporting the firm’s work in the South West, across all service lines, and expanding its relationships with existing and new clients working in this region. Delva Patman Redler’s projects in the area include Unite’s student accommodation scheme on the site of the old Bristol Royal Infirmary, Bath Rugby Club and the historic Bath Spa.
Chris comments: “It’s great to be back! I obviously know the team very well having spent a large chunk of my career at Delva Patman Redler, which will certainly help me hit the ground running. I look forward to picking up with Delva Patman Redler contacts and projects, old and new, helping to support the team in its ongoing work to grow the business in the region with the same successes as my colleagues in the North West.”
Stuart Gray, Senior Partner at Delva Patman Redler, comments: “Following on from our appointment of Ashley Patience last year, we’re delighted to welcome back another DPR Alumni! As Chris says, he knows the team and the business well as is perfectly positioned with his knowledge of the South West region – and further afield – to provide on the ground expertise.”
The new Delva Patman Redler Bristol office will be located at 40 Berkeley Square, Bristol BS8 1HP.
