Dan joined LUC in 2010 after graduating from the University of Sheffield with a Masters in Landscape Architecture in 2009. He is a key member of our team in Scotland, with an interest in landscape and environmental planning, and manages projects undertaken from our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices.

During his seven years with LUC he has gained considerable experience in undertaking landscape and visual impact assessment (LVIA) and cumulative landscape and visual impact assessments (CLVIAs) as part of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process for a wide range of development types, including mineral extraction, renewables, electricity transmission infrastructure, large-scale built development and transport infrastructure.

Dan has extensive experience in providing preliminary landscape and visual feasibility advice in relation to onshore wind energy developments; in routeing and assessing electricity transmission infrastructure in relation to landscape and visual matters; in preparing written material on landscape and visual matters for planning appeals; and in supporting LUC’s landscape expert witness at public hearings and inquiries.

He brings a broad understanding and experience of working on complex infrastructure projects, often within a wider multi-disciplinary team, to his work along with a flexible approach to design and assessment.

For the past three years Dan has sat on the Landscape Institute Scotland branch committee, helping promote the role of landscape architecture and the landscape profession in Scotland.

Outside work: Dan is a keen cyclist, rock climber and snowboarder, with a passion for travelling the wilds of Scotland and beyond.
