Jane has extensive experience in all aspects of planning, along with an excellent track record in implementing and facilitiating successful strategies for a range of clients and organisations, including Central Government. She is commercially focussed and client driven with an outstanding record of building client and partner relationships, and leading multi-disciplinary teams at both local and national level.
Throughout her career Jane has gained a depth and breadth of experience with large scale development and infrastructure schemes, and is very much development management and delivery focussed. Her experience covers, inter alia, residential, retail and town centres, regeneration, aviation and rail freight.
Jane has led or worked in teams reponsible for the delivery of some high profile schemes, including Wembley Stadium, the London Eye, St Pancras International Passenger Station, The RedMall, MetroCentre, Gateshead, and Newcastle Great Park (Northern Development Area), Urban Extension.
She has, over the years, developed a skill and specialism in Direct Access to barristers, and as a result has a detailed working knowledge of both Call-in and Section 78 Inquiries.
