Jonathan joined in 2007 from Reading Borough Council and has over 12 years of experience in taking major residential, commercial and mixed-use schemes through the planning system.

He is responsible for establishing and managing the planning strategy for strategic land holdings from acquisition through to disposal.

Jonathan’s meticulous approach to all aspects of a project, whether through the promotion of sites through the development plan process or submission of planning applications, and careful management of multi-disciplinary teams, ensures that robust planning arguments are presented. This has been demonstrated most recently by gaining planning consent for 3m sq ft of logistics development at Magna Park, Lutterworth.

Through the review of the evidence base for the Lutterworth scheme, Jonathan has also been instrumental in the diversification of db symmetry into rail-based logistics, through the identification of the Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange opportunity which is currently being taken forward as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) through the Development Consent Order (DCO) process.
