Chris joined Pegasus Group in 2017, having worked in planning consultancy since 2007. Prior to this, Chris was a minerals development control and minerals and waste planning policy officer at the East Riding Council and North Yorkshire County Council.

Chris has significant experience of managing applications for both minerals and waste related development including the promotion of sites through the development plan process, the preparation of planning applications for a variety of mineral and waste related development, including extraction, treatment and ancillary activities.

Chris also has extensive experience of the energy industry including of energy from waste facilities and the provision of new and replacement high voltage energy infrastructure.
Key experience includes the preparation of technical planning reports and statements in support of applications for consent, the development of consents strategies and the application of these strategies to the development process.

Within the minerals sector Chris played a lead role in securing planning permission for the extraction of clay to supply the existing Alne Brickworks. This has ensured a secure supply of bricks to the award-winning York Handmade Brick Co. for circa 40 years. Notable experience of the waste industry has seen a range of waste treatment and disposal facilities granted planning permission, many within sensitive areas such as
Green Belt, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and National Parks. The provision of new/replacement energy infrastructure has been a key element of Chris’ experience to date. Examples of this include the provision of a realigned overhead line across the River Tees (including The River Tees Special Protection Area), the erection of a new overhead line in the Green Belt between Leeds and York and the refurbishment of approximately 15 miles of overhead line through the Peak District National Park.

Chris’ experience has given him a sound understanding of the legislation and practice surrounding minerals, waste and energy consents alongside working with the appropriate authorities in the preparation of EIA and Habitats Assessment screening and scoping.
