Niall’s property experience extends beyond town planning, which enables him to see the bigger picture.


BA (Hons) Urban Studies & Planning – University of Sheffield
MPlan Urban Studies & Planning – University of Sheffield/Aalborg University
Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute

Niall joined Planning Potential in late 2013, from the strategy and delivery team of a leading property agency and consultancy, based in London’s West End. Before this, he worked as a graduate at a consulting firm in Loughborough and Bury St Edmunds, where he specialised in minerals and waste planning.

Since joining Planning Potential, Niall has worked on a range of planning projects, gaining skills in research, analysis and the representation of clients. His sound knowledge of the UK planning system allows him to provide clients with high level advice and proposed strategies.

Whilst acting for a variety of clients on a wide spectrum of jobs, Niall is currently specialising in town centre and heritage matters, which fall primarily within the Leisure Team. He is currently studying for his second Masters, this time in Historic Conservation at Oxford Brookes, and is developing a strong understanding of heritage issues that is reflected in his work.  

An entertaining member of the Planning Potential team, Niall can usually be found at the centre of any fun (or drama) that takes place in the office. Apart from his planning role, Niall’s other great passions are Jonno (his pet tortoise) and Chester and Lester (his twin ginger kittens).
