Peter Woodley BSc Hons MRICS, Director, Public Sector Advisory, GVA
Peter is a Director within GVA’s Public Sector Strategic Advisory team. He has over 35 years’ experience working within property, including 22 years within the public sector – both as an advisor and also as a senior officer within local government.
Peter has a long track record within the health sector and has been involved in a range of innovative health and well-being projects, the earliest of which comprised the Epsom Library & Lifestyle Centre, in Surrey. He was a leading advocate for the Minehead “New Horizons” Centre, trying to bring together a new hospital, education and leisure facilities to promote healthy lifestyles and was one of the driving forces behind bringing together West Somerset District Council, Somerset County Council and the Somerset PCT to deliver the component parts. He also developed a range of Sure Start Centres across West Somerset around this time, linking Children Centres with other multi-disciplinary services, including mid-wifery, GP’s, health visitors and Dental Services, as part of the government’s drive to delivery better opportunities for families.
More recently, Peter has been heavily involved in the One Public Estate initiative and with Plymouth City Council, he helped to secure several millions of pounds in revenue and capital funding across a range of Health & Well-Being. He has developed an excellent insight into the NHS Transformation Agenda and having worked closely with Primary, Secondary & Community Care, Social Services & Social Commissioning, NHSE, NHSi and CHP, has provided input into the development of STP’s and other strategic planning for health care and delivery across the UK.
His 35 years in property has enabled the development of a broad range of disciplines, including construction and development, planning, economic development, agency, asset management, business planning and investment.
