Author Biography

Andrew Thorburn grew up on a small farm near Bridport, obtained a degree in Physical Geography, served two years in the Royal Navy, married, and taught himself town and country planning. He worked as a planner for five different County Councils with an interlude directing the Notts-Derbys. Sub-regional Study. Andrew is the father of three children. He has written many papers on the policies and processes of town planning and a book entitled "Planning Villages" published by Estates Gazette in 1971. During nine years as County Planning Officer of East Sussex he served as President of the Royal Town Planning Institute and initiated the foundation of the Sussex Heritage Trust. In 1983 he was appointed Chief Executive of the English Tourist Board. Two years later he resigned to work in Tourism and Leisure consultancy, first with Pannell Kerr Forster, then Grant Thornton, and finally with his own firm, which continues. He wrote this book whilst cruising in a small yacht in the Mediterranean.
