Julian Stanyer is a Chartered Surveyor. For most of his life he has specialised in the field of urban regeneration. He was at one time Deputy Chairman of the British Urban Regeneration Association under the Chairmanship of (Lord) Patrick Jenkin. He has worked on a number of major developments in London, from Broadgate to Millwall Football Club, and more recently to large scale mixed schemes within the Thames Gateway. Many of his schemes have won prestigious awards and one of his schemes recently won the accolade of 'European Square of the Year'. For over twenty years he worked as an independent consultant but now works as a general practitioner in one of the post-war new towns, Basildon, where he is the Team Manager for Basildon's Corporate Property Services.
He moved to Langton Green from Blackheath in 1986. He has been married to Anne for over forty years. They have three grown-up daughters, all of whom have been fortunate enough to attend Langton School and then to Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School and then to University.
Julian's experience includes both the public and private sectors. He was for many years Corporate Director of Economic Development and Estates at the London Borough of Lewisham which has given him a great insight into the workings of local government and of revitalising local economies which he is able to apply as a local Councillor. Whilst there he led the team which won £37.5 million of external funding from the City Challenge programme. For the past twenty years he has been a freelance consultant. During that time he has published three 'best practice' guides and been awarded a Jones Lang LaSalle Research Grant to carry out research into Business Improvement Districts in the USA and UK as well as delivering many major development schemes across London.
