2017 RTPI President, Stephen Wilkinson

Stephen is the Head of Planning & Strategic Partnerships at the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority (the area of which includes parts of Essex and Hertfordshire). He has also worked for four London Boroughs and for the Audit Commission, where he advised planning authorities on their management arrangements. He has over thirty years of experience in planning and regeneration and sits on several regeneration boards.

After receiving a specific request from Stephen to visit Norwich and Great Yarmouth, we have organised a visit on 13 July to the Norwich Research Park, http://www.norwichresearchpark.com/home.aspx, an international centre of excellence in life and environmental sciences research, where he will find out more about the exciting projects taking place by the Park’s Chief Executive Officer.  Stephen will be taken on a site visit to the Quadrum Institute, https://quadram.ac.uk, a new multi million pound state-of-the-art food and health research and endoscopy centre which is due to open in 2018.

The afternoon will be spent on the river, with a boat trip from Norwich city centre to Whittingham Country Park, returning to the offices of the Broads Authority for an Evening Reception with members and young planners.  More details about this reception will be added to the website shortly.

The second day will be spent in Great Yarmouth, with a walk through the new Town Centre Masterplan area.

If you would like to meet Stephen during his visit, or if you have a project which you would like to share with the President, please let Adam or Michael know via the Regional Office email address of eastofengland@rtpi.org.uk
