      Mike Jones

      Based at the heart of the Arc, Mike leads the Milton Keynes planning team, dealing with development projects principally across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire. He specialises in resolving planning issues and negotiating with stakeholders to implement planning strategies and deliver sustainable developments. 

      Mike’s background is principally within development management and the housing sector, including large-scale strategic planning applications for new settlements and urban extensions. This has enabled him to be adept in the strategic promotion of land of various scales and uses through local and neighbourhood plans.

      He prides himself on the variety of his work, from large-scale energy schemes, urban mixed-use developments, residential care, education and civic buildings, and community projects - this includes expert witness work at appeals and local plan examinations.

      At Campbell Wharf, he assisted in a scheme of ‘planning excellence’, delivering a vibrant, unique, mixed-us,e sustainable development. The development has been recognised by the RTPI as a success in local engagement and mixed-use waterside regeneration and has led to further instructions across Central Milton Keynes for similar innovative developments.
