Anthony Benson


A qualified urban planner and urban designer, Anthony is our man in Merseyside, dividing his time between his desk at our waterfront Liverpool office and Southwark Street.

Before joining us, Anthony worked in a number of local authority planning departments making him perfectly placed to now support local authority clients to deliver development and investment strategies. With us, Anthony has led high-profile planning, masterplanning and development strategy projects, including the Shoreditch Area Action Plan, Epsom and Ewell Strategic Masterplan and a strategic masterplan for a new Garden Community to the west of Cheltenham. Projects in the north west include masterplans for Ellesmere Port and Huyton town centres and a number of strategies and studies across Flintshire.

In his hometown of Liverpool, he enjoys the new connections that have been forged between the city’s retail area and the waterfront, evidence of what good urban planning can achieve.

Anthony holds postgraduate degrees in urban design and town planning from Oxford Brookes University.
