Gwen joined LUC in 2011. She’s a landscape architect, highly skilled in landscape and visual impact assessment and strategic studies, as well as in more detailed landscape planning and design work.
She has expertise as a landscape clerk of works on major infrastructure projects and in the residential and energy sectors, carrying out masterplanning and landscape and visual impact assessments.
Her experience in LVIA includes desktop studies and feasibility reports, screening and scoping consultation, reporting for EIA, and supplementary planning information. She has also carried out a supporting role in post-application work, in the discharge of planning conditions and in appeals and public inquiries.
Gwen has been involved in numerous strategic studies, considering landscape character, designations, sensitivity and visual amenity. They include: character assessment; impacts on National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; green belt reviews; regional feasibility studies; capacity studies; and strategic cumulative assessments.
Outside of work: Gwen enjoys camping, cooking, climbing and the odd bit of caving.
