A NORTH-east planning firm is in the running for a national award.
Aurora Planning Ltd has been nominated in the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTP) Small Planning Consultancy of the Year category for Planning Excellence UK.
In its three years of business it has taken on countless projects including securing planning permission for the first Scottish satellite launch site and advising ground-breaking community project Buchan Community Farm.
Maggie Bochel and Pippa Robertson, founding directors, are delighted with the nomination.
They said: “We are so chuffed to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award.
“We have been involved in a huge variety of projects, from the spaceport in Sutherland to helping local charities, such as Buchan Community Farm and Four Pillars, secure consent to enable them to support those most in need.
“It’s great to have that work recognised.”
The winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on April 29.
