About Us

Leigh Yeats

Community Planner
Master of Town & Country Planning

Having completed his planning degree at the University of Manchester, Leigh spent the next eight years working in the banking sector. During this time, he carried out long term internships at URBED (Urbanism, Environment & Design) where he was involved in a number of community engagement projects and co-founded two community greening groups.

As a Community Planner Leigh supports the practice’s Community Planning processes, working with communities and stakeholders to build shared Visions for masterplanning projects and regeneration strategies. His recent projects include organising Community Planning Weekends for Central WinchesterRugeley Power Station and Nicholsons, Maidenhead.

Outside of work Leigh continues his involvement with community greening groups, helping to create better environments through sustainable gardening and improving social well-being. When not saving the world, he can either be found in the kitchen baking sourdough and brewing kombucha, in the garden growing tomatoes and chillies or in a brewery making beer!
