Gideon Amos

Gideon is Chief Executive of the Town and Country Planning Association. He is a qualified urban designer, a chartered architect trained at the Oxford school (Oxford Brookes University) and a chartered town planner.

His experience includes working as a Development Designer at WS Atkins where he specialised in the design and development of housing schemes. In the early 1990s he served for four years after gaining a seat as a Councillor representing Oxford's Central Ward (much of which on the city's Planning Committee) and becoming Group Leader.

After returning to the private sector Gideon was appointed Director of Planning Aid for London, an independent community planning service for those unable to afford professional fees - a service begun at the TCPA.

He served on the Mayor of London's Policy Commission on the London Plan. At the TCPA he co-authored the 2001 paper A Programme for Sustainable Communities, and was secretary to the cross party Hetherington Commission: Connecting England - A Framework for Regional Development.

He is a Fellow of the RSA and member of the Planning Advisory Group at the Department for Communities and Local Government. In his spare time Gideon is a non executive Board member of Swan Housing Association.
