About Us

I am Adrian Thompson, Director of Lightwater TPC, and I am an independent chartered town planning consultant.

I offer a wealth of experience and knowledge that can be put to use to support you and your project.

I have been practising as a Town Planner for twenty five years. I have worked in the public sector at a number of different authorities, including Bolsover, Broxbourne, Sevenoaks, Swale, Wycombe, South & Vale and Lambeth, and in the private sector, with architects and town planners West Waddy ADP.

My experience spans the two main areas of local authority work: dealing with and preparing applications for a wide range of different projects (including appeals and enforcement work) and also the preparation of new planning policy documents (including promoting sites for inclusion in new policy documents).

I have been a Chartered Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute since 1996. I have a Masters of Arts in Town Planning and a Postgraduate Certificate in Urban Design.

I set up Lightwater TPC to help people and businesses engage more effectively with our planning system. It can be complicated, bureaucratic and time consuming. I guide people on how to make best use of the planning system.

I am based in Chester and work primarily across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales. I can work further afield across England and Wales and would be happy to talk with you if you have a project elsewhere in the country.
