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