Wendy enjoys the challenge of project management and landscape planning for major infrastructure projects, combining strong analytical and organisation skills with a collaborative approach to drive successful outcomes.  

Founded in a belief that, through careful context-driven planning and design, all projects can maximise their contribution to the landscape and community while minimising impacts, Wendy has led the delivery of a large number of high profile planning and design projects. Her experience encompasses:

  • Transportation infrastructure (rail, road, port and airport)
  • Energy (windfarms, solar, transmission and Liquefied Natural Gas)
  • Mining (coal, aggregates and metalliferous mines)
  • Urban expansion projects (subdivisions, sewage, industrial)

Many of these projects addressed the careful integration of infrastructure into environments sensitive on account of their biodiversity, heritage or visual values.

Key areas of Wendy’s technical capability include:

  • Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA)

  • Landscape Policy and Strategy Advice
  • Strategic land use planning
