Jenny's career has been as a technical author working in computer research and development. For many years she has, however, also been a campaigner for sustainable transport and better planning. So when there was an opportunity to start a project bringing planning and transport together, it was irresistible, and thus Transport for New Homes was born. Jenny believes that an important part of campaigning is explaining to the non-specialist how the system works in plain language and concepts. That way non-specialists can see where and why things are going wrong and properly appreciate how they can be put right.
Foundation for Integrated Transport Secretary
Alastair has spent much of his 30-year retirement from the City in transport campaigning. He has been Chair of Living Streets and a trustee of the London Cycling Campaign and of the Campaign for Better Transport.
Stephen Joseph is a transport policy consultant, specialising in urban and local issues and in smart transport. He was appointed a visiting professor at the University of Hertfordshire in December 2018, having received an honorary doctorate from the University in November 2010. At present, Stephen is a trustee of the Foundation for Integrated Transport and is on the steering group of the Foundation's Transport for New Homes project. He chairs the Smart Transport programme board for Bauer Media and is an adviser to the Rail Devolution Network. He is also chair of the Liverpool City Region Bus Alliance Board. He was Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport (formerly Transport 2000) from 1988 to 2018. During that period, he led campaigns to reduce major road building, to increase rail investment including in new/ reopened lines and stations, and to highlight the importance of buses and the impact of cuts in bus services. He was awarded the OBE (Order of the British Empire) in 1996 for services to transport and the environment.
Transport and Urban Planning Consultant
Tim Pharoah has more than 55 years' experience of transport, land use planning and urban regeneration in local authorities, private consultancies, and the academic sector.

In 2017 he received the Urban Design Group's Lifetime Achievement Award. Details of his work can be found on his website.
Sustainable Transport Campaigner
Steve is an urban planning and sustainable transport consultant, lecturer and campaigner. He has fought to reduce the cost of rail travel, have better bus services outside London and to get more people walking in more liveable cities.
Jess has worked in charity communications with a focus on sustainable transport since 2007. Her skills combine press, web, social media and events. Jess is a keen cyclist and passenger on Suffolk's rural buses and was active in the campaign against the Ipswich Northern Bypass.
Campaigner / Fundraiser
Dickon started off working in the built environment sector with the award-winning renovation of Frome Silk Mill. He became involved in local politics in his hometown of Frome, before studying for a Masters degree in Heritage. This led to working for English Heritage and Tate, along with freelance project work for the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Combined with a strong interest in cycling and walking, Dickon believes our built environment should enable sustainable travel.
