All set for WYG Week in Leeds

The first week of October sees the return of WYG Week, a series of events over a five day programme to say thank you to clients as well as offering an occasion to network with other professionals working in the built environment.

Leeds based consultancy WYG’s Planning & Environment teams, will host a variety of seminars and evening networking events nationwide focusing on topical industry subjects commencing on 1 October 2012.

To celebrate WYG Week, the Leeds office is hosting a drinks and canapés reception at Tiled Hall, Leeds Art Gallery on Wednesday 3 October from 6pm-8.30pm. The welcome address will be made by WYG Chief Executive Officer Paul Hamer who is also a member of the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

This year, the emphasis will be on our Planning and Environment services and will boast a larger client and employee invitation list and larger venues making the events bigger and better than ever before.

If you are interested in attending the event, please contact Ele Linardou via email: or tel: 0113 219 2217 by 24 September.

Tim Holden, Managing Director of WYG Planning & Environment said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to celebrate another WYG Week. This is the ideal opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to our clients and colleagues who have worked so hard on many challenging and rewarding projects throughout the year’.

Tim added, ‘Planning has rarely featured so prominently in the economic and political arena. The Government’s intention to introduce further changes to the planning system will, I think, raise new opportunities and challenges for us all. We will be exploring these opportunities through the various events we have planned. We hope everyone associated with our company will join us in celebrating what I am confident will be a successful WYG Week.’

WYG’s Planning and Environment teams offer innovative, practical and cost-effective advice that helps clients make informed investment decisions and gain successful outcomes from the planning system. Our planning services fall into three main categories – town planning, landscape & design and environmental planning – the scope of which range from preliminary site appraisals through to preparing and submitting planning applications and accompanying documentation.
