I am a chartered landscape planner with over 15 years’ experience, working on Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP), Developments of National Significance (DNS) in Wales, and Section 36 energy consents in Scotland. I specialise in landscape planning advice on site feasibility and promotion, green infrastructure strategies, green belt review, Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) and Residential Visual Amenity Assessment (RVAA). I have been a guest speaker at Renewable UK conferences and presented evidence as a landscape expert witness at public inquiries, hearings and Examinations in Public (EiP).

I enjoy working identifying site opportunities and constraints through detailed landscape and visual analysis. This ensures that the development parameters are guided by local character and distinctiveness to create a sense of place and a positive environmental legacy.

Outside of the studio, I like spending time with my family, walking in the countryside and frisbee.


My favourite landscape is …

Suilven near Lochinver in north west Scotland. This iconic mountain stands alone in a vast expanse of moorland, bogs and lochs which accentuates its wild beauty.

I love the view from …

The Cherhill White Horse in Wiltshire. The light and shadows moving across the chalk downland changes with every visit.

My secretive superpower is …

Folding OS maps in driving rain and gale force winds.
