James enjoys that London is uniquely a collection of tightly packed villages while also being a global city. He helps clients take on the challenges of London politics and work with councils and communities to achieve their goals.

He has worked in planning communications in and around London since 2016 working with major house builders, industrial and commercial developers, housing associations and local authority development companies. James has successfully worked on projects approved by almost all London boroughs as well as applications called in by the London Mayor and Secretary of State.

Prior to planning communications, James worked for the Labour Party as a London campaigns organiser. He managed three general elections and two local election campaigns across four London boroughs and was a senior organiser on Tessa Jowell’s campaign for London Mayor in 2015. He remains a London Labour Party activist.
