Tony was a local government chief officer and director with over 30 years experience in all aspects of town planning, housing and development. His particular expertise now is in steering large and complex developments through the planning process and moves from council to council, mainly in East England and London. At every council he finds he has to raise or challenge the debate on ‘development’ and ‘growth’ and has done this under the banner that ‘debating works’, encouraging staff and management to confront and argue these and other issues. He is currently working in Cambridgeshire.
