By clare weir

A company involved in a number of high profile renewable energy projects in Northern Ireland has been recognised as one of the UK's top 10 planning consultancies.

SLR Consulting, which has an office in Hillsborough, has worked on technical planning assessments for Lightsource Renewable Energy, as part of proposals to develop two solar farms in Northern Ireland, as well as assisting and securing planning permission for Energos for a 80,000 tonne clean energy recovery from waste facility in Lisburn.

The company has also worked to enable McKinstry Skip Hire to develop and expand their business as well as the development of an updated Belfast City Master Plan for Belfast City Council.

The firm has reported a 12% increase in fee income and has been ranked as ninth in the league table of High Earning UK Planning consultancies in Planning magazine's annual consultancy survey.

Principal manager Peter O'Connor said: "This is a great result and our success with an increasing range of Northern Irish projects over the last year certainly contributed to our move up the rankings."
