Background: Founded Cascade in 2011; 9 years’ experience advising property clients on public affairs and consultation. Prior to Cascade, established a local government & planning team when recruited as a Director at Bell Pottinger from Four Communications before that.
Career highlight: Gaining planning permission for the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, one of London’s largest masterplans to regenerate the iconic Power Station and notoriously complex 40 acre brownfield site.
Most challenging project: Strata, the 42-storey residential tower in Elephant & Castle recognisable by its 3 wind turbines. Winning support from local residents who felt disenfranchised was essential. Permission was granted in 2006, just 6 weeks prior to local elections with residents’ support; without it, councillors would have said no.
Clients past & present: Affinity Sutton | Capital & Counties | CIT Group | Delancey | English Heritage | Imperial College | London Square | Minerva | National Grid Property | Ptarmigan Land | Redrow | Royal College of Art | Taylor Wimpey | Battersea Power Station Development Company
