Technical expertise and personal service at competitive rates

About Me:

I am a commercially aware planner with considerable experience of working with both the public and private sectors.

Having completed my degree and diploma in Town Planning I initially worked for a national grocery company, working first as a Site Research Executive and then as the company’s Town Planning Researcher. 

In 2004 I joined a leading national planning consultancy, where I advised on a range of proposed developments in England and Wales. I also advised local planning authorities on their evidence base and appeared at a number of examinations of LDPs representing both landowners and the local planning authority. I have prepared evidence for planning appeals and appeared at both public inquiries and informal hearings.

I maintain a keen interest in working with academic institutions and have lectured at both Cardiff University and University of the West of England. I have been a member of the National Retail Planning Forum’s Research Group for over 10 years and am a founding member of the Society for Locational Analysis (SLA).
