Say hello to… Elise

What sparked your interest in architecture/urban design/planning?

I discovered the world of planning while I was studying Architecture and found it more interesting, so changed course. I’m glad I did as I really like the variety of my job.

Is there an area of your role that you are particularly passionate about?

It’s the people side that interests me. I really enjoy working on Estate Regeneration and Urban Design projects where – hopefully – planning can help make a difference to people and communities.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career so far?

Listening and learning from my colleagues. Teamwork essentially.

What are you looking forward to in 2018?

Becoming a Chartered Planner. (Elise will become our 6th Chartered Planner in the Planning Team).

Weekends are for …..

Eating and drinking.
