Pete Davis is a Technical Director with Amec Foster Wheeler Environment and Infrastructure with 25 years of experience, beginning with work as a mudlogger working on rigs and platforms in the North Sea in the late 80s. He has worked for Amec Foster Wheeler for more than 16 years. He has directed and managed numerous projects for all tiers of government concerning the development of strategic and operational responses to sustainability, including application of the SEA directive, sustainability appraisal, management systems development, performance measurement and stakeholder engagement practices.
He leads the provision of strategic assessment services to the public and private sector. In this role, he has completed more than 100 Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) and many Habitat Regulations Assessments (HRAs) of plans and programmes covering energy infrastructure, nuclear decommissioning, submarine dismantling, waste management, water resources, land use and economic development (with clients in UK, Europe and South America).
He is also responsible for directing Amec Foster Wheeler’s business development with regional and local government. This is informed by his work for numerous local planning authorities on the development of their local plans, which has included critical friend support provided through the Planning Advisory Service. In consequence, he is familiar with development, appraisal, challenge and implementation of local planning policies and their relationship to national planning policy and guidance.
He provides expert witness evidence to inquiries and examinations and has presented at many conferences (for bodies such as the RTPI, CIWEM and IEEM).
