Elizabeth is experienced in a wide range of landscape and environmental schemes with expertise in detailed design, contract administration, masterplanning, landscape and visual assessment, landscape character assessment and the co-ordination of environmental statements for major development areas and highway schemes. She has also prepared Green Infrastructure strategies and management plans as well as restoration proposals and statements of significance for historic landscapes. Elizabeth also provides the role of commissioning artwork within the practice, and advises the rest of the design team on art matters.
After joining the practice in 2000 with a background in fine art, Elizabeth has gained significant experience in both leading and providing a supporting role for a variety of major landscape projects. She is currently preparing the detailed landscape design for the first development phase at New Lubbesthorpe, a major sustainable urban extension west of Leicester, having previously co-ordinated the Environmental Statement to support the outline planning application. Another current project is Stubbocks Walk, a mixed use development east of Luton, for which Elizabeth has produced the masterplan, Design and Access Statement and Green Infrastructure Biodiversity Management Plan as well as having undertaken the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment work.
Elizabeth has recently completed the North East Lincolnshire LCA which involved a Landscape Character Assessment, Sensitivity and Capacity Study of the Borough. This will be published by the local authority, providing part of their evidence base for future policy and decision making. She also completed the design and implementation of a £3.5 million Heritage Lottery funded restoration scheme for the Matlock Parks. This involved innovative design solutions and artistic elements such as bespoke signage and railing design, a new water and petrifying feature and artwork for interpretation boards, while working closely with manufacturers and contractors to realise designs within the available budget.
