Alex Yearsley is a Principal Planner, situated in our London office. Alex has an extensive track record in providing valuable planning advice and services across Greater London and the South-East.
Having worked in both the private sector and Local Authority, Alex has a broad range of planning experience. His career began as a Planning Officer for Westminster City Council which provided him with a well-rounded perspective of planning that still serves him today. In 2014 he sought out private consultancy work because of his drive to produce planning solutions for clients and to ensure development is delivered.
Since joining Bell Cornwell, Alex has been involved with a range of projects spanning a diversity of sectors, providing advice to both private and public organisations. He specialises in residential, educational and mixed-use development and is adept at advising on matters in the Green Belt. His services include land promotion, appraisals, the preparation and management of planning application submissions and appeals. Alex has also worked on several heritage-based developments and is well versed at compiling Listed Building Consent applications and Heritage Statements.
From a young age Alex had a keen interest in the built environment and cities. The variety of work and range of projects involved in planning appealed to him as a career, leading him to enrol in a Geography and Urban & Regional Planning (BSc) degree at The University of Birmingham. Alex went on to study his Masters in Urban and Regional Planning (MSc) at Birmingham too, graduating in December 2012. He became a chartered member of the RTPI whilst working as a consultant in 2016.Back to our team
