Kath B And WKatherine Haddrell

Board Member Women in Planning SW
APC Assessor
Past Chair RTPI SW (2006)
Past member of RTPI Membership Assessment Advisory Panel
Past member RTPI General Assembly


Kath began her career in the private sector in Bristol and has moved around the region, acquiring an impressive track record working on or for plans, bodies and projects that have been abolished/withdrawn, including: Cornwall County Council Structure Plan team, Government Office for the South West and the IPC. Despite that, Kath is still passionate about planning and specialises in Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects.

Having moved out of the region from 2017 -2019, spending two amazing years working on beautiful Ynys Mon/Isle of Anglesey (you guessed it, the project was withdrawn), Kath is now back in the region as an Associate at WSP.  Outside of work, Kath enjoys travel, spending time with friends and family, being in the great outdoors and occasionally baking.  

Kath first joined the RAC as a young (ish) planner in the early 'noughties and was Chair of the region in 2006.
