Michael is one of the UK's leading odour consultants with over 30 years experience in air quality and odour issues. He was the chairman of the working group that produced the Institute of Air Quality Management's Guidance on Odours and Planning in 2014 and updated in 2018. He consequently has an excellent knowledge of the odour issues that can arise when making a planning application.


His experience in odours covers intensive agriculture including chickens, pigs, cattle and ducks, wastewater treatment, waste disposal, food processing, chemical works and numerous restaurant applications.


He has assisted many clients at public inquiries, in court and at planning committees. He has given expert evidence at over 60 public inquiries and has worked with many of the UK's leading barristers.


Michael's work includes preparation of reports for planning applications, review of odour assessment reports, odour modelling, preparation of Odour Management Plans (OMPs), odour surveys and expert witness.


He is a contributing author to the book Designing with Smells  published by Routledge in October 2017
