Celebrating 30 years of planning excellence
In 2014 we were delighted to celebrate our 30th year in business. From our establishment in 1984, we have grown into one of the largest independent planning consultancies in the UK operating from offices in Leeds and London.
Whilst over the years there has been plenty of change at Peacock and Smith, our established core values of providing intelligent advice to meet client requirements with a ‘can do’ attitude remain our focus.
As part of our birthday celebrations, we hosted events in both Leeds and London.
Our main event was an evening of drinks and canapés held at the Champagne Bar in Leeds City Centre. Many of our clients, colleagues and friends over the last 30 years attended the evening and the champagne flowed! It was great to see so many old and new faces and we would like to thank all of you that joined us in the celebrations and to all that have supported us over the last 30 years.

Furthermore, to mark this milestone our members of staff partook in a number of charitable events throughout the year. Money raised was donated to St Leonard’s Hospice in York.
The hospice is a registered charity that cares for people with life-threatening illness and is where our dear friend and colleague Andy Etchells was cared for before he passed away in January 2009. The hospice does not charge patients or their families and is financially supported almost entirely by charitable donations.
In the run-up to Yorkshire’s magnificent Tour de France weekend, members of staff at Peacock & Smith set about attempting to cycle the Yorkshire stage of the Tour (242 miles) on exercise bikes. Everybody put in a massive effort and over Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th July we managed to cycle a total of 669.2 miles (1076.9 km), far exceeding our target of completing Stages 1 and 2 of the Tour.
Thank you so much to everyone that sponsored us. We ended up raising £2,742.24 for St Leonard’s Hospice in York.
Thank you to all who have supported us over the last 30 years. We look forward to working with you over the next 30!
