Nick is a chartered town planner and development surveyor with over 25 years' experience, gained across the residential, commercial, retail and industrial sectors for corporate, institutional and private landowners and developers. He has worked at CBRE and Drivers Jonas Deloitte. His professional experience is in three main sectors – Strategic Land / Projects, Retail / Mixed-Use and Central London. Strategic Projects / Land involves the promotion of land for commercial and residential development for landowners and developers. Retail / Mixed-Use schemes are a blend of edge of centre and town centre mixed-use schemes with food stores and other uses, often residential. This sector includes regeneration and waterside schemes. Central London focuses on projects from Canary Wharf to Hammersmith and Camden down to Wandsworth, Southwark and Lambeth. When he isn’t working, Nick can be found playing golf (increasingly badly) and spending time re-stocking and emptying his wine cellar to indulge his passion for wine.

Our London planning team recently received approval at Croydon Council’s first virtual planning committee for Brick By Brick’s Fairfield Homes scheme of 421 residential units, healthcare and commercial space, and extensive new public realm including pedestrian and cycle connections.

The scheme in central Croydon is designed by MICA Architects and Common Ground Architecture.

Our planning professionals worked closely with Croydon Council to lead the scheme through the pre-application discussions, as part of a Planning Performance Agreement. The team organised and participated in negotiations with the GLA and Croydon’s Design Review Panel. Our London viability team also prepared a financial viability assessment to justify the level of affordable housing. Construction is due to begin later in 2020.
