News: 1 October 2019Two Partners appointed from within the organisation

We're pleased to announce the appointment of  two new Partners from within the organisation.

From the 1st October, Planning Directors Justin Kenworthy and Nick Paterson-Neild will join the existing 19 Partners at the Practice.  

With a career at the Practice spanning 17 years, which began as a Senior Planner, London-based Justin Kenworthy has undertaken a number of landmark projects in London and is currently working on a number of large estate regeneration schemes and the transformation of 19 hectares of previously developed land in Silvertown to create a new riverside community comprising 5,000 new homes and 20,000 sqm of industrial / colocation floorspace, designed around a new local centre and 1.6 hectare park.

His specialist areas include residential-led regeneration, estate regeneration, later-living, hotel development and colocation proposals on industrial land and his client base is principally housebuilders, registered providers, retirement sector, pension funds, private landowners and private rented sector investors.



Meanwhile Nick Paterson-Neild, who is based in the Reading office, joined the Practice in 2003 as a Planner with a focus on the Thames Valley, Oxfordshire and northern Hampshire markets. The majority of Nick’s work is in the promotion of strategic residential land and the education sector, including securing planning permission for the 74,322 sqm Thames Valley Science Park for the University of Reading.

He has recently obtained planning permission for the British Museum Archaeological Research Collection (BM_ARC) in Wokingham. The 15,000 sqm bespoke-designed single-storey building located adjacent to Thames Valley Science Park will consist of three connected blocks providing custom-designed space to store, study, share and conserve the collection giving university students and academics access to the unique objects housed there and allowing local schools, museums, heritage organisations and the public access to the collection by appointment.

Commenting on the news, Senior Partner Mark Sitch, said: “Both Justin and Nick have had outstanding careers with the Practice, and it has been great to watch them both grow and be instrumental in the delivery of our investing in people programme. We are delighted to have them join and strengthen the Partnership group at Barton Willmore.”
