David Shepherd

Director of Regeneration and Property, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, UK

David Shepherd is the director of regeneration and property at the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council. He leads on development activity for the council, including the Prestigious Glass Works project, which is currently transforming Barnsley Town Centre as a place to visit, shop and spend quality time. David brings together a people-centered approach for place-based activity, blending his experience of delivering high-quality services with the knowledge of how to empower communities and businesses, so lasting change is delivered. David has worked closely with public health colleagues in Barnsley, and previously in Bradford. He has learned how the devolved model works well in Barnsley. He is particularly pleased with the practical achievements brought about by the "Smoke-Free Generation," as well as work-based health improvements in the borough. Looking forward, David wants to see good nutrition for all Barnsley's communities contributing to better life outcomes across the borough.
