Relevant experience

Michael has a PhD in Public Health Engineering, is a Chartered Environmentalist and Chartered Engineer. He is one of the few Fellows of the Institute of Air Quality Management (FIAQM) and has been involved with the Institute since its inception and is a past Vice Chairman. He has sat on the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) Air Panel and  on the Environment Agency's Regional Environmental Protection Advisory Committee (REPAC).

He has over 34  years of experience working in air quality and odour consultancy and in research positions, during this period he has advised on a host of air quality issues working on some of the largest infrastructure projects in the UK and overseas but also on smaller scale issues where his experience can rapidly bring problem issues to a resolution.  Michael has worked with air dispersion models throughout his career and can consequently call upon a depth of experience in this area. He has developed bespoke dispersion models for specific situations including roads and tunnels where existing models were unable to produce the required outputs. 


He has also led the field in the development of guidance on Air Quality and Planning having been the co-author of the first guidance produced in the UK on the topic (on behalf of the RTPI), he also contributed to the ALG and NSCA guidance documents on the same topic. He has worked widely providing advice on air quality issues in planning applications. He was chair of the group that produced the IAQM guidance on the assessment of odours for planning and sat on the group that prepared the IAQM guidance on air quaity monitoring during construction. He has spoken and published widely on air quality issues - see my publications list.

  • Major motorway projects including the A14, M25, M2, A1(M), M65, A23, A406, A14, A40, A13, M4 and the M1;
