Arthur Morgan

Artist /Designer/Teacher. Resident in Winchester since 1980. Director of Art School, Winchester College 1980-2004. Member of the Trust since 2005. Chairman of a Planning Appraisal Group panel since 2014.

Iain Patton

I am a retired Solicitor, whose career was in criminal law, first as advocate and latterly as manager. That later experience has proved particularly useful in my work for the Trust. I have lived in Winchester for thirty-eight years and have been a member of the Trust for most of that time. My interest in architecture is of long standing and has been encouraged by my surroundings. I am concerned that the city should evolve without its character changing through over-intensive developments but with the best possible architecture. The Trust's influence in that field could be strengthened by an increase in membership numbers and I am convinced that all existing members should endeavour to recruit new members.

Sue Turner BArch MSc MRTPI

Initially worked as an architect in public and private practice, then as a local authority planner specialising in conservation and design. Recently retired after 17 years as a Planning Inspector, running public inquiries and Local Plan examinations. Now carrying out occasional consultancy work. Retains a professional interest in conservation, housing and strategic planning, underpinned by a firm commitment to sustainability and public engagement.
