Sheffield City Council , director
Nalin has been a director at Sheffield City Council since 2009. Now, as Director of City Centre Development he is guiding a city centre strategy that reinforces Sheffield’s position as an inclusive regional capital at the heart of an ambitious northern economy.
In his local government roles, Nalin has been responsible for key regeneration projects and the delivery of ambitious capital programmes including schools, housing and transport.
Nalin’s current focus is on delivering the Council’s flagship Heart of the City II project – a £370 million, mixed-use scheme which will provide a vibrant new commercial, cultural and retail destination in the heart of Sheffield city centre. Phase one of the scheme is complete. This includes a landmark office building occupied by HSBC and CMS, as well as almost 60,000 sq. ft. of retail space and high-quality public realm. Phase 2 is under construction.
A fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Nalin has held senior positions in the public and private sector in a career spanning over 30 years. His experience has shaped his belief that the delivery of public sector services and projects must be flexible and must increasingly be shaped by strong leadership, commercial considerations and an inclusive approach to stakeholder partnerships.
