Community regeneration

I have extensive experience of delivering, managing, supporting and evaluating community regeneration. In 2013 I created Your Back Yard, a community interest company that supports community regeneration, and most of my work in this area is now delivered through that company.

Examples of my work in this area includes:

Dun Cow Quay site plan

Feasibility study into Dun Cow Quay, Blyth

Investigation of possible options for the development of this key site on Blyth Quayside, on behalf of Northumberland Arch.
