The Planning Graduate Scheme at GL Hearn offers the opportunity to work across a range of projects and provides valuable experience in various uses. Throughout the two years, I have been involved in projects of every scale, from advert consent to residential-led applications for 900 units, the training provided has given me a firm grounding and essential insight into both the planning and wider property industry
