He holds the Transport Planning Professional qualification and is a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Logistics and Transport and a Member of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Transport Planning Society.

David is currently studying part-time for a PhD at Loughborough University in ‘Transport Planning in Large Scale Major Residential Developments in England’.
