Morgan joined AspinallVerdi in February 2021, having previously studied LLB Law at the University of Nottingham and MSc Real Estate at the University of Reading. This RICS-accredited course provided a well-rounded experience of areas such as real estate development, appraisal, valuations and sustainability. Morgan is now working towards his APC via the Planning & Development pathway.

Morgan's work with AspinallVerdi has provided excellent opportunities to work with both public and private sector clients. Morgan has previously advised on issues including development viability, masterplanning, and s106 agreements. Morgan's experience has also allowed him to develop skills in residential and commercial market research and valuation as well as cash flow modelling using ARGUS Developer and Microsoft Excel. Morgan has also undertaken extensive planning policy research and advised public sector clients on potential regeneration policies as well as private sector clients on the impact that planning policy may have on their projects.

Favourite Regeneration Project

Emirates Stadium, Highbury – The masterplan implemented to facilitate the move of Arsenal FC from our home at Highbury to the Emirates Stadium demonstrates what is achievable when public and private sector work together. Islington Council and Arsenal FC worked together to identify a nearby brownfield site that had been vacant for decades that would allow the club to remain in the local area. The masterplan also facilitated the regeneration of an area of Holloway that had previously been identified as one of the most deprived and under-invested places in the UK. The plan included provisions for not only a new stadium but also 3,000 new homes, 50% of which were affordable, a new ecological centre and a £60 million state-of-the-art recycling facility. As part of the s106 agreement, Arsenal FC have also subsequently opened a specialised learning facility for local residents. This stadium-led regeneration has led to further social and private residential housing developments to the south of the stadium, as well as new student accommodation that has recently been completed for London Metropolitan University.
