Peter joined the Gladman team in April 2013 to assist with the identification and promotion of strategic land, particularly focussing on the south west of England. Undertaking this work Peter analyses local authority housing land supply statistics and planning policies in order to find suitable sites for residential development. As well as searching for potential site opportunities one of Peter’s key roles is to support the preparation of representations for local authority planning documents. This work involves scrutinizing proposals in Local Plans and other local development documents against the requirements of national policy and local evidence.
Peter is a qualified town planner holding a BA (Hons) in Environmental Planning and Management from the University of Bangor and an MCD in Town and Country Planning from the University of Liverpool. He has recently achieved full membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute.
Prior to joining Gladman Peter gained six years’ experience as a planning policy officer in local government, working for Vale Royal Borough Council before transferring to Cheshire West and Chester Council. Primarily supporting the development of the Council’s Local Plan and accompanying evidence base Peter was able to gain a broad understanding of the planning system whilst undertaking a varied workload. This included formulating policy responses for large housing applications, supporting housing land supply monitoring and preparing site constraint studies and statutory environmental assessments.
Outside of work Peter enjoys playing squash, being walked by his dog and running around after his young son.
