About Rachel

Rachel has over 29 years’ project experience with a wide range of traditional landscape design, urban design, heritage planning / management, environmental planning and landscape assessment projects. She is recognised for her skills in masterplanning, project consenting, and design leadership / review.

Having had a strong focus on landscape planning following the advent of the Resource Management Act Rachel has, through practice, developed skills in the field of urban design. She is an experienced presenter and an accomplished expert witness, Rachel often presents evidence at council and Environment Court hearings.

With a special interest in cultural and historic landscapes, Rachel has co-ordinated a number of urban revitalisation and design projects through to implementation and has been involved with open space structure and allocation planning. Experienced in community facilitation, she enjoys public design working with the community to find design solutions which provide for local needs and reinforce the community’s sense of identity.
