Vice Convenor
Gavin Ward MCIEEM

I have now worked as a consultant for over 13 years and in that time I have been a subbie, a lead consultant, an advocate and an objector. My background is in both ecology and the wider environmental/planning sector, including a previous role as an EIA co-ordinator.

I would like to now use my experience to help promote CIEEM whilst also improving relationships across the local network of consultants, stakeholders and consultees in the East Midlands.


James Faulconbridge MCIEEM

I am Principal Ecologist at Landscape Science Consultancy with over eight years of experience in ecological consultancy including a range of protected species and botanical surveys and project management. I have been an ordinary member of the CIEEM East Midland committee since 2015 and am looking to extend this involvement in 2016.

James Whiteford MCIEEM

Since graduating I’ve worked in research, the public sector and more recently for an environmental consultancy based in the East Midlands since 2007. I manage a team and still enjoy getting my hands dirty undertaking field work with a particular interest in plants and bats. As my wife is an Ecology Lecturer at a local university and I’ve taught in schools, I’m keen to develop local CIEEM links with schools, colleges and universities.
