PETER WHITE BSc MA Dip TP FRSA, Director

Peter White is a director of Fresh Life Consulting. He has 27 years of regeneration experience, working mainly in the Midlands area. Having learnt about project management in the social housing field, he became interested in economic regeneration in the early 80’s and set up one of the first enterprise agencies providing managed workspace, which still operates very successfully.

He has since worked on many landmark schemes including the Chubb Buildings in Wolverhampton and the Crossing at St Paul’s in Walsall for which he won a BURA award for best practice in Urban Regeneration. In recent years he has been involved in substantial regeneration strategies and physical regeneration projects requiring detailed feasibility studies, market research and option appraisals for a range of public private and third sector clients.

A common theme running through much of his work reflects his belief that to be really successful, projects have to find ways of achieving financial sustainability, giving a degree of freedom to respond to changing needs, and to draw on the best from the private, public and voluntary sectors, in meeting their wider objectives.
