John R Laxton 1928 – 2019

Posted by Admin

It is with great sadness that we announce that John Laxton, a former Partner of Playle & Partners passed away on 5 May 2019 aged 90 years. John joined the Practice in the early 1960s and was a Partner for twenty years retiring in 1988. John was instrumental in shaping the Practice and the ethos and professionalism adopted – He was pleased to know that this has continued long after his retirement.

In addition to his role as a Partner of the Practice he was a very active member of the RICS – he was the Kent Branch Chairman in 1983/84, the Branch Treasurer and for a number of year was the Kent Branch Representative on the QS Divisional Council in addition to various other committees.

He was involved in and led a number of the large projects in the early days of the Practice including Moss Side, New City Court, Merthyr and Rugby Shopping Centres and Eastcheap/Philpot Lane, London to name a few.

Our thoughts are with his son and daughter, Bryan and Barbara and his grandchildren at this sad time
