Charles Robinson BTech (Hons) MPhil MRTPI
After graduating in Environmental Sciences Charles then achieved a Master of Philosophy in Environmental Planning from Reading University (where he was tutored by, amongst others, the enigmatic and charismatic Prof Peter Hall).
This led to a spell working with Nathaniel Lichfield and Partners, where he worked with Prof Lichfield himself, before he moved to become the first in-house planner in a national retail group.
He has held Directorships with DTZ, BNP Paribas and DLP and is currently back working for his own consultancy where he advises a wide range of clients including national housebuilders, developers and landowners. His expertise and interest lies in development.
Charles has been active in the RTPI at Branch level and has also served on the CPD Panel at national level. He is a past Chair of the Branch and remains a keen supporter of CPD – helping to organise, chair and present at Branch events.
Away from planning he enjoys walking, cycling and squash (which he plays with more enthusiasm than skill these days) and is a keen supporter of Manchester United.
