BDB is delighted to host a business breakfast with Simon Ridley who will be discussing his role with a focus on NSIPs but also the broader changes in PINS and the relationship between the two.
Simon is Chief Executive of the Planning Inspectorate. The Planning Inspectorate is an executive agency of the Department for Communities and Local Government. The agency deals with planning appeals, national infrastructure planning applications, examinations of local plans and other planning-related and specialist casework in England and Wales.
Simon was previously the Director of Local Government Finance at the Department of Communities and Local Government. He held this position from 2010. In this role he led a wide ranging reform agenda in local government finance that met the Government’s priorities on fiscal consolidation, economic growth, localism and public service reform. Prior to joining the Department for Communities and Local Government, Simon worked for 13 years at HM Treasury. He held a variety of roles there, predominantly focused on public spending and economic reform.
