Peter Studdert was appointed director of joint planning for Cambridge's Growth Areas in 2007 and has been leading negotiations with developers on major housing sites around Cambridge on behalf of South Cambridgeshire District Council, Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire City Council.

In a statement today, South Cambridgeshire District Council said that Studdert would retire from local government at the end of March to set up a planning consultancy based in Cambridge.

Studdert said: "With council budgets being so tight, and with excellent teams in place in the three authorities to carry the major projects forward, now seems like a good time to step down and pursue my wider interests at regional and national level."

Studdert serves on English Heritage's advisory committee and urban panel and was recently elected to the policy council of the Town and Country Planning Association.
