Tim Marshall


I have been an Emeritus Professor since the end of 2016. I continue researching and writing, and supervising doctoral students.


My main areas of research are on the larger scales of planning, at city region, regional and national levels, both in the UK and in parts of Europe, particularly France, Germany and Spain. This is related to continuing work on big infrastructure systems and their planning, including in relation to the work of the UK National Infrastructure Commission. 

This is understood within the tradition of political economy, where the links are made with social science disciplines, particularly political science and political economy.

As an originally practising local authority planner in English metropolitan contexts, I continue to link this back to the work of practising strategic planners, with some continuing knowledge of what is happening in Southern and Midlands England.
