A member of both the Places Matter! and Yorkshire and Humber Design Review Panels, Rob spent ten years as a Principal Urban Designer at Sheffield City Council, offering urban design advice for all types of development: city centre residential flats; student accommodation; commercial and mixed-use proposals; the retention and reuse of historic buildings; educational buildings through the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme; Housing Association schemes and infill development.

Rob also led on providing design advice on a number of strategic developments, including the Sheffield Market, alongside Leslie Jones Architects. 

keen eye for the bigger picture and for the detail, Rob can offer a fresh perspective and insight, providing constructive and positive advice and exploring practical solutions to enable good development with an emphasis on placemaking and local distinctiveness.
