Connor Donnelly

Graduate Land Planner

BA (Hons)

Connor joined Gladman in August 2017 as part of the Graduate Research team, after graduating from the University of Sheffield with a Geography Degree only a month earlier. His main role was to identify potential residential sites across multiple areas of the country. The role also enabled him to gain in-depth knowledge of the planning system and issues surrounding existing planning policy both on a nationwide and local scale. More recently, Connor joined the Land Planners and assist members of the land team in analysing the planning credentials of potential greenfield and brownfield sites and carrying out sustainability appraisals.

Outside of work Connor likes to spend time outdoors exploring, either on his bike or taking a hike. He has a passion for sports, particularly football and boxing, however he doesn’t get much time to get involved with them anymore! Connor is also interested in travelling and has visited a variety places such as Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo and Kyoto and looks forward to wherever he ends up on his next adventure.
