Professor Martin Boddy

We are very saddened by the news that Martin Boddy, Emeritus Professor of Urban and Regional Studies at the University of the West of England, has passed away. Martin was exceptional, and dedicated to improving the towns and cities in which we live, not least Bristol and Swindon. The latter having been a core focus for him over the past year, as he led the Swindon Futures Commission. Many of us worked closely with Martin, and knew him to be a kind and thoughtful man, who was able to use his intellectual gifts, energy and diplomacy to help our region greatly.

We will miss Martin.
