Regeneration, the renewal and revitalisation of the urban landscape, is an essential part of improving the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of our towns and cities.

Carter Jonas is at the centre of regeneration, transforming centres, places and sites. Our dedicated and highly regarded consultancy team  has a strong track record of working in partnership with local planning authorities, regeneration bodies, landowners, businesses, investors, developers, stakeholders and communities to help unlock the investment and development potential of centres, assets and sites.

Our energy and purpose as a team is to help our clients create high quality sustainable places and deliver transformational mixed-use regeneration projects that are economically and commercially viable, and valued by all.

Our infrastructure experts work alongside teams from around the business, particularly our planning and development team. Our specialists are able to provide a complete service to local authorities and developers seeking to undertake regeneration schemes.

This comprehensive and joined-up service sets us apart from our competitors and enables us to deliver throughout the lifetime of a project.

Our combined teams are able to carry out viability studies, developer procurement and partnership agreements and masterplanning. 

Thank you for all your hard work, and for marshalling a disparate group of people into a unified body working with focus, driving us to achieve what needed to be done. The end is now in sight, and the development can progress unhindered.

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.
