“I worked with Ed for four years on major development sites around Cambridge. Ed represented Cambridgeshire County Council on a number of multi-disciplinary teams that I led, working with a wide range of stakeholders on planning and delivering large scale new urban extensions to Cambridge. This is a complex task requiring a high level of professional and technical skill, and Ed brought a creative and ‘can-do’ attitude to the challenges that we had to face, particularly in relation to community engagement. He always managed to bring a fresh perspective to the problems that we had to solve, and he was a valued member of our team.”
