Paul Joyce has been with L&C for 7 years starting as a Graduate Planner straight from his Masters Degree at Brighton University. During his 7 years he has seen two promotions and now is a Senior Planner within the practice. When speaking of how he came to embark on a career as a planner he talks of his BA degree in History inspiring an interest in how towns and cities are put together. Paul has always had an interest in how impressive architectural buildings speak of their era. Much like the renowned Architect, Frank Gehry’s inspiring quote “Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”
Within L&C Paul specialises in small to medium housing schemes on infill or redevelopment sites, extensions and alterations to public houses, as well as developments in heritage areas and is a new member of the IHBC South East (Institute of Historic Building Conservation). Paul has also developed himself to be quite the expert in HMO developments and has a myriad of successful applications across the country!
When Paul isn’t writing planning statements and studying the Town and Country Planning Act, he enjoys socialising (in the many extended public houses he has achieved permission for), reading, sports and plotting out his life long ambition to own a vineyard.
