Every year is different. Activities and priorities for our Chief Executive and post-holder in the coming months, working with the wider team, will include:

  • working with communities to build truly affordable sustainable homes in London and the south east;
  • the evolution of Bioregional’s One Planet Living initiative;

  • strategic organisation-wide activities such as annual business planning.
