I have 12 years’ experience working within the Public Sector. I have held a number of roles within the Development Control department and studied part-time for a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning Studies at Sheffield Hallam. I graduated in 2009 and gained full accreditation to the Royal Town Planning Institute in 2011. I have experience in a wide range and types of planning applications including pre-application discussions, which include large and small scale residential, agricultural, leisure, tourism, renewable energy, economic and industrial developments. 

A quirky fact about me: I’m a VW enthusiast and drive a red T5 camper van as my daily ride.
