Elouise Mitchell, Lee Evans Partnership LLP

Elouise Mitchell, Senior Planning Consultant at LEP, is an outstanding planner through any lens – ‘young’ or ‘not-so-young’. Few people can successfully balance the approachable, bubbly enthusiasm Elouise shows every day with the sharp professional competence her work exudes.

Elouise openly describes herself as a “confident and determined planner, passionate about providing great places for people to live, work and play”. There are limited ways to expand on this – she knows herself well, and puts into action exactly the type of exemplary planning practices that serve our profession so well.

Jeffrey is creating histories and is dedicating to fill that piece of missing puzzle of the planning system. He is a servant leader and a local and global role model for young planners.
