Chris is the former Labour leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, from which he stood down in 2014, and will work alongside the Planning team to expand the agency’s work in London as well as lead on major regeneration projects.
As Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich he led one of London’s most ambitious regeneration agendas, including the Greenwich Peninsula, Royal Arsenal and Kidbrooke Village developments. He led campaigns to secure the delivery of major infrastructure projects, not least the delivery of Crossrail to the Borough.
Chris’s experience includes his time as Chair of the Thames Gateway London Partnership of 10 local authorities in London, as well as leading on planning and regeneration for London Councils until last year. A former member of the Mayor’s London Housing Board and Local Enterprise Partnership, he led Greenwich to securing Royal Borough status and through the period when it hosted major events in the Olympic Games.
His passion for regeneration will provide Cratus with a platform to move to the next level of support for our development clients. He also provides an important political balance to the team.
