Response to the Consultation on the Environmental Principles and Governance after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union
I am Professor of Environmental Geography and Planning at Northumbria University, a chartered member of the RTPI and a knowledge exchange fellow funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) 2017-2020. I have over 30 years’ experience in the built environment sector with successful funding amounting to over £2.5 million from government and research councils, 40 peer review publications and 2 games on spatial planning matters. My interdisciplinary research focuses on environmental governance fusing spatial planning and ecosystem science theory into improved policy and decision-making in practice and makes me ideally placed to comment on the consultation relating to the efficacy of environmental governance and associated Principles after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.
