New 50 Shades of Planning Podcast – Episode 26: A conversation with Chris Findley

In a piece written during a recent period of furlough leave, Sam Stafford posited that a career is like climbing a mountain in that the real reward is at the top when you can sit back, with the greatest possible perspective, and take it all in.

Sam gets the chance to test that theory in this episode by chatting to Chris Findley who, as many North West-based 50 Shades listeners will know, recently retired after a 42 year career that included 26 years at Salford City Council.

The conversation takes in Chris’ early experiences in Beverley and Leicester, the seemingly endless rounds of planning reform and the transformation of Salford Quays.

BECG proudly supports the 50 Shades of Planning Podcast from Samuel Stafford, Regional Strategic Land Director at Barratt Developments.
