Ed Carr

Project Consultant

0161 3595684

I joined LDA Design’s Manchester studio as a project consultant in 2024. Before joining, I worked at a multi-disciplinary environmental consultancy, specialising in environmental planning and working on UK-wide low-carbon and renewable energy technologies, urban regeneration and industrial development projects.

I sit centrally in project design teams supporting throughout the design-led process which we adopt to EIA. Being engaged at the outset of a project gives me broad scope to steer good project design. This goes hand in hand with maximising environmental benefits and reducing environmental impacts. Ultimately, I aim to deliver holistic and considered EIA to achieve lasting environmental enhancements which shape the landscape we leave behind.

Away from the desk, I’m a keen sportsperson. I play Tag Rugby, run and cycle, and when not exercising I’m often outdoors. I enjoy spending downtime with my family and friends, never more so than when cooking and baking for them.

The last book I read was ...

'English Pastoral' by James Rebanks – A farmer’s account of the changing landscape of the fields, fells and peoples of the Lake District. It’s a book I return to often.

I love the view from ...

The beer garden at the back of the Inn at Whitewell, which is set above the River Hodder and looks out onto the Forest of Bowland Area of National Beauty.

My favourite tree is ...

English Oak. A truly majestic and mighty tree both in its symbolism and its physical stature.
