John graduated from the University of Manchester in 2009 with a Master’s Degree in Town and Country Planning and became a Chartered Town Planner in 2014. He started out working for Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, gaining valuable experience in local plan making and the determination of planning applications.
Since then he has spent the last 4 years managing planning applications for residential development in sustainable locations. John has been heavily exposed to complexity of the planning system, working closely with local communities, local authorities, and other stakeholders to achieve a number of planning consents.
In his spare time, John enjoys visiting European cities and sampling the local beer and cuisine! He is also a proud supporter of Manchester City FC.
