Daniel Black specialises in urban development decision-making, and focuses on health and sustainability. Having spent many years learning about processes and detail downstream in a range of urban disciplines including transport, urban design, building construction and community engagement, he now leads research into decision-making that takes place upstream: governance, partnerships, corporate strategy, risk management. Daniel has been Non-Executive Director of his family's multi-award winning development company, Clipper Estates, for over a decade. Since setting up as an independent consultant in 2012 he has won £750,000 in research funding from InnovateUK, NERC and the Wellcome Trust and has been commissioned to assess the health and sustainability of three high profile super-major developments in Bristol. He is a Visiting Research Fellow at UWE Bristol and works closely with the World Health Organisation Centre for Healthy Urban Environments there as well as multiple other universities, academics and consultants, particularly at the Universities of Bath, Bristol, and Reading’s Henley Business School.
