Alan is one of the UK’s leading mixed-use development consultants and leads the development team at Montagu Evans. He has circa 20 years’ experience and is focused on setting the vision for transformative regeneration projects involving local authorities, the private sector and communities.

The world is rapidly changing and amongst the fastest are those relating to how people communicate and interact with each other – not just online, but in physical environments such as schools, health, the work spaces and neighbourhoods we live in. Alan’s expertise lends itself to advising on a variety of integrated sectors and assets to deliver results for city and town centre visions.

Real estate is a critical component to any town centre and how it’s owned, funded, operated and occupied. Alan helps to bridge relationships between many local authorities with current or new investors wanting to invest capital.

Alan’s role in supporting greater collaboration between the public and private sector, in addition to managing the the needs of the community, has been key to his and the teams success. As government focus on commercialisation continues, public sector intervention will increase and those in the private sector can’t deliver risk-appropriate returns for stand-alone developments and repurposing.
