J10 was established by Justin Paul in 2003; with the goal of delivering the highest quality professional planning advice in the market, at a truly competitive rate, and at its core the principle aims of adding, releasing, generating and maximising value through the land planning process.
What’s more, J10 is commercially astute; we have an excellent understanding of the political and public consensus, market trends and development finance, which allows us to provide sound and incisive expert planning and development solutions.
Fully chartered by the RTPI (Royal Town Planning Institute) we are active within the profession regionally and nationally; this has brought contacts, respected relationships and benefits few others are able to demonstrate.
Justin graduated from Bristol Polytechnic and the Université de Tours in 1992 and started his career cutting his teeth training under one of the “Godfathers” of modern town planning (Anthony Goss) providing master planning and early retail impact advice to clients across the UK from offices in Milton Keynes and London.
This led onto obtaining six years of “coalface planning” experience in Local Government development control and policy teams at Winchester, Shrewsbury and Chester. Back into the private sector with BDP Planning in Manchester and then to Savills where he set up the northern planning team before leaving in 2003 to establish J10 Planning.
Justin’s experience is extensive within both the public and private sectors. His particular strength is in providing clients with incisive, strategic, no-nonsense advice grounded in commercial realism for projects of all sizes and scales.
He has been MRTPI since 1994; is RTPI NW Treasurer and also holds membership of the CPA (compulsory purchase association) and is affiliated to the IHBC (institute of historic building conservation).
He is also a School Governor. Married with 3 children he spends much of his leisure time enjoying rugby, shooting, boating, skiing and gardening.
