April 2017

Philip G. Wright, former Deputy Director and Senior Research Fellow at OMEGA Centre, UCL Bartlett School of Planning, sadly passed away on 5 April 2017.

Phil was a warm, kind and thoughtful man who in his own low-key manner contributed very insightfully and significantly to the OMEGA Centre’s research, its publications and consultancy portfolio, and to the field of mega infrastructure planning generally. His personality, intelligence and modesty always shone through in all he did.
