Stuart Hatton

Managing Director

Umberslade

Stuart heads up Umberslade, a leading, family-owned property development, management and investment business, which has overall responsibility for Bristol’s Wapping Wharf regeneration project. One of the most significant developments in the city, Wapping Wharf is a harbourside community featuring high quality homes, as well as independent restaurants, cafes and shops. Already known as Bristol’s new foodie quarter, Wapping Wharf has created a new connection between south Bristol and the city centre via Gaol Ferry Steps, and, when complete, will include over 600 apartments. Founded over 20 years ago, Umberslade has a track record of supporting the independent retail sector and many years of combined knowledge across the residential, industrial, retail and commercial sectors. The firm plans to retain a long-term interest in Wapping Wharf.

Claire Pearce

Assistant Director Inward Investment and Growth

Sedgemoor District Council

As the Chief Planning Officer and Assistant Director for Inward Investment and Growth at Sedgemoor District Council, Claire is responsible for major projects, economic development, planning strategy, infrastructure and development management. With a reputation for positive planning, investors enjoy a collaborative working model under Claire’s leadership.

Current priorities are ensuring Sedgemoor remains at the forefront of planning reform, maintaining the highest performance nationally, whilst continuing to deliver new jobs, homes and infrastructure. The role involves Hinkley Point C (HPC), taking an overview of implementation and compliance; ensuring a positive legacy consistent with the Council’s vision and long-term ambitions to transform ‘place’, and inspire communities.

Building on capacity and capability generated through HPC, the mobilisation of the Enterprise Zone within the M5 corridor (J.23) will be a key strategic opportunity to showcase the delivery of the Government’s Industrial Strategy - specifically energy enabled clean growth, creating a unique UK proposition for foreign direct investment at the centre of the South West.

Claire previously worked for Somerset County Council and prior to that in a number of private and public sector roles across the South East, which involved strategic planning, economic development, large scale mixed use schemes and major transport infrastructure projects.

EVENT INFORMATION

ADDITIONAL SPEAKER TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON 

Although the future is increasingly difficult to predict, the South West is poised for enormous change in the coming months. This presents opportunities and challenges for those in the Industry, who need to adapt to changes and maintain the delivery that the region needs.

In the West of England alone, we are awaiting announcements on the 26 acre site at Filton, further detail on Bristol Arena and the outcome of the Joint Spatial Plan and Transport Study. More widely, partnerships are progressing ambitious large scale housing and complex regeneration projects, in city centres, housing estates and on the edge or towns and cities. And, of course, there’s our future relationship with Europe, which has important ramifications for the South West. Our ‘Regenerating & Investing’ breakfast on 16 May comes at an important time.

We have a first-class panel of contributors to explore these topics, who bring direct experience of some of the most high profile and important projects in the South West in recent years.

Cllr Paul James - As well as being Leader of Gloucester City Council and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economy he is a property manager for Naylor Powell and has been closely involved with a number of major developments in Gloucester, including: Gloucester Quays, Bakers Quay, to the city centre Kings Quarter scheme, and the delivery of the city’s new Transport Hub.  

Stuart Hatton, Managing Director, Umberslade: A property development, management and investment business, which has overall responsibility for Bristol’s Wapping Wharf regeneration project. When complete, this amazing scheme will include more than 600 apartments as part of a thriving and successful mixed development. What have been the challenges been and what is next?

Claire Pearce, Assistant Director Inward Investment and Growth at Sedgemoor District Council is responsible for major projects, economic development, planning strategy, infrastructure and development management. She brings a unique perspective into the delivery of the £18bn Hinkley Point C in Somerset. It will be fascinating to get the latest on the local involvement in shaping Europe’s largest civil engineering and construction project.
