Temple has appointed Ivan Tennant as the new Socio-economics and Social Value Director. He will support the company’s wider purpose of providing cutting-edge advice on sustainable development.

Ivan’s practice has focussed on drawing together the evidence needed to support plan-making at neighbourhood, local authority and sub-regional scales.  This involves a mix of community engagement and desk-based methods to ensure the place’s social and economic attributes are not overlooked in planning and strategic policy development.

This appointment is a fundamental part of Temple’s growth and Ivan will lead on developing and implementing strategies that enhance this core aspect of the company’s services.

 “I am delighted to be joining Temple – the organisation has a reputation for excellence in delivering the social and environmental value that underpins economic resilience and high well-being standards. In particular, I’m looking forward to working with colleagues to convincingly evidence the importance of taking the households’ social and economic welfare into account in the planning and delivery of development.”  – Ivan Tennant

Ivan’s extensive experience and passion for social value and planning will be invaluable as we and our clients continue to grow and strengthen our shared commitment and ambitions to positively impact the communities we create, operate and serve. Ivan is another valuable addition to our already fantastic property & planning team. I look forward to working with him to conceptualise, assess and create new, innovative and high-performing places and programs that truly make a difference.”  – Mark Skelton, Temple CEO

This further reflects Temple’s dedication to providing high-quality service and support to clients implementing sustainable practices, pursuing development, and upholding the highest standards of environmental compliance.
