RTPI Junior Vice Chair
I started my Planning career within the Private sector before moving to the Public sector in 2015. As a Senior Planning Officer at Teignbridge District Council my role is currently focussed on being the Case Officer for the urban extension of Exeter, a development of 2000 homes with associated infrastructure. My career to date has given me a broad experience of planning and my background in design enables me to achieve good design in developments going forward.
I joined the RAC in 2016 following my years on the Committee for the young planners. I saw the RAC as an opportunity to inspire change in the South West, and being able to influence the support that planners need in order to create better places. It also enabled me to be a voice for the Young Planners, ensuring that their needs were also met.
Having a strong passion for making the built environment accessible for all, I joined the RMB in 2019 and aspire to be Chair in 2021. As Chair, I hope to raise the profile of how important it is to create accessible environments, thereby helping people remain independent for as long as possible.
