As Head of Cities Programme at Design Council I oversee the work of our Advisors to manage the delivery of our design advice programme. I ensure the quality of our delivery for a wide range of clients and help the organisation to provide critical insight into development issues for Local Authorities and National Advice Panels.
I have 15 years of professional experience both in the UK and internationally delivering a range of projects from new city plans to individual community buildings. Working for national and local governments, developers and communities, I have developed participatory design processes to support urban regeneration and neighbourhood planning whilst building capacity across communities and the built environment professions in Europe, Asia, Africa and Central and South America. I’m an Urban Planner by training holding Masters in both Landscape and Town Planning.
