Professor Paul Brenikov died on 17 June 2016, aged 94. A long-serving Fellow of the Society, Paul was a very experienced and influential town planner with an MA from the University of Liverpool. He began his career as a Planning Officer at Lancashire County Council and published a book on Land Use in Urban Environment in 1961. Paul lectured at the University of Liverpool before taking up post as the Head of the Department of Town and Country Planning at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne until 1986, when he was appointed as Local Plans Inspector by the Department of the Environment. Paul also had a keen interest in drawing and etching which he pursued into his retirement and, an ever enthusiastic learner, went on to receive a BA in Fine Art at the age of 85 from Sunderland University.
