Early Career in Stockport Town Regeneration
Michael’s early career after leaving school, many, many years ago, included a short stint in urban renewal working for his home town Council, Stockport, as site labourer on small building sites around town.
Later he spent a year and a half working as office assistant with a local community group in the Brinnington community alongside part of the town’s Single Regeneration programmes.
Both these experiences added to Michael’s long term interest in urban design and how communities are shaped by the architecture they are given for good or ill.
