Nick James is an environmental planner and a Principal of LUC, one of the UK’s leading environmental consultancies (www.landuse.co.uk). Much of Nick’s work aims to improve the way we plan for Scotland’s landscapes. He has carried out a number of landscape character assessments, covering areas such as Tayside, Ayrshire and Glasgow and the Clyde Valley, and has assisted Scottish Natural Heritage and local planning authorities develop policies for developments including renewable energy. Most recently, Nick has been exploring the implications of climate change for the landscape, for communities and the way in which we manage land. Recent work has included a series of climate conversations with communities across Scotland, and a current project, working with land managers and other local people to develop an integrated approach to land management within the Carse of Stirling. Nick is a keen hillwalker, kayaker, cyclist and photographer.
