Nash Partnership boosts planning team in Bristol with Senior Urban Designer

Nash Partnership has recruited Senior Urban Designer Neil Harvie to its planning team in Bristol.

Neil brings with him a mix of planning and design experience and a diverse portfolio from two high profile London practices.

He joins most recently from Farrells, where he drove forward mixed-use projects from Mayfair to unlocking development in London’s outer boroughs, and led the design team on London Resort, a world-class theme park. Working with both private and public sector clients, Neil has experience of complex urban settings and addressing rural challenges.

Before joining Farrells, Neil spent over three years at Savills in London, where – among other projects – he worked alongside Cornwall Council to secure a deliverable eco-town near the Eden Project.

Commenting on the recent recruitment, Nash Partnership’s Associate Planning Director, Mike Fox, said: “Neil’s unique mix of planning and urban design experience is very relevant to a lot of the challenges facing our clients. His strong track record of working on schemes both large and small means he will play an important role in creating places with character and identity.”

Nash Partnership provides an integrated offer for the built environment including architecture, planning, urban design, regeneration, spatial economics masterplanning and heritage expertise. Neil is based in the planning and regeneration team in Bristol, but works across all services offered by the practice.
