Johnny Clayton joined Carter Jonas in July 2018 to head up the Masterplanning and Urban Design practice across the UK. Johnny is a Masterplanner and Urban Designer, with a broad skills base and over 16 years of project experience encompassing conceptual design, masterplanning, urban design, detailed design and project implementation. His particular specialism and passion is for strategic land projects including new settlements, but also urban mixed-use regeneration schemes. Johnny is also a Chartered Landscape Architect since 2008.

Johnny is inspired to create new sustainable communities and places through a well-considered, innovative and forward thinking process of design, with a strong respect for history and place. He is highly focused on pursuing pioneering design solutions and techniques to improve the sustainable credentials of new developments.

Further to his work at Carter Jonas, Johnny is CEO of YEP Global, an events organisation with Chapters throughout the UK and overseas. YEP has over 5,000 members and holds over 50 events per year, focused upon the property and construction industries.

I can provide advice on:

The 140 hectare Daedalus site is formed of two distinct areas: the airfield and hangars to the north, located within Fareham Borough Council; and the historic waterfront zone to the south, which forms Gosport Borough Council’s major future employment area.

The development site is planned to provide 5,000 jobs and the entire masterplan achieved Enterprise Zone status. Carter Jonas’ masterplanners, working closely with the Carter Jonas’ planning team, designed and submitted two planning applications, which both achieved outline planning consent. The waterfront site proved especially challenging as it contained several listed buildings in a Conservation Area. This meant that detailed design briefing was required and there was extensive consultation with both CABE and English Heritage.
