About the Author

Adam joined the Department of Planning and Archietecture at the University of the West of England as a lecturer in 2007 from planning practice. He has previously worked in Essex, South Gloucestershire and the Bristol urban fringe, and Herefordshire as a Local Planning Authority development control officer, involved in a diverse range of planning projects at varying scales and degrees of complexity. Adam has worked in both the rural and urban context and has experience across the planning spectrum, from Green Belt areas and open countryside to inner city redevelopment projects.

He teaches modules relating to planning regulation and the decision process to undergraduate and postgraduate students, and on professional practice short courses. He is part of the programme team for the undergraduate planning courses at UWE.

Nick Smith is a senior lecturer in the department and is also a university teaching and learning (associate) fellow. He is a professional town planner and a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Town and Country Planning Association.

Prior to joining the university in 2007, Nick worked for Terence O’Rourke, a multi-disciplinary consultancy in Bournemouth. During this time he worked on a range of projects for both public and private clients across the country, including an urban extension in Cambridge, a university campus in Surrey, and a heritage and technology centre for Mercedes-Benz. He was also involved with a series of design-led master plans. He is programme leader of the BSc (Hons) in Urban Planning which he has done since 2010. He has received recognition for his efforts in this role, being successful in winning the university’s ‘personal tutor of the year’ award in 2011. In 2012 he received a teaching-led award from the Students’ Union for Inspiring Students.
