Phill Bamford

Associate Director Policy & Research

Phill is Associate Director of Policy and Research, after spending the last 27 years in both public and private sector planning roles.

Phill started his career in local government with Broxbourne Borough Council and worked for many years preparing development plans and other planning policy documents for Manchester City, Vale Royal, Tameside and Cheshire West and Chester Councils.

For the last 9 years Phill has worked for LPDF member Gladman Developments, leading their Planning Policy and Land Promotion team and learning quickly about the commercial and practical realities facing the development industry.

Outside of the planning world, Phill spends a lot of time with his family, living his failed sporting career through his son Thomas, who is a keen cricketer and footballer. He also spends time in the kitchen, and being an ex-chef it has allowed him to find a love of cooking as a form of relaxation (with a whisky in hand of course!!!)
