POS is delighted to learn that former Society President Malcolm Sharp has been awarded the MBE in the New Year's Honours List for services to town planning.
In his usual modest manner Malcolm commented that this was as much for his work and POS colleagues as for his own contribution. "It's good to see planning getting some good press for a change" quipped Sharp.
Malcolm Sharp was President of the Planning Officers Society in 2012/13 when he was the Managing Director at Huntingdon DC. Malcolm led the team that won the RTPI Silver Jubilee Cup in 2010 for the Great Fen masterplan; and sat on the Lyons Commission in 2014 that established a road map for changes to housing and planning policies.
Malcolm is now an independent planning consultant and can be contacted at email@example.com
