Her experience was gained through working with multi-disciplined teams on a range of public, private and commercial sector projects. 

Linda has a strong background in landscape planning as applied to large scale commercial, roading and residential subdivision projects.  She has been involved in the various stages of the consent process from consultation through to preliminary and detailed design.  She has good practical knowledge of the options for landscape mitigation and has the design, written and graphic skills to present these concepts in a range of forums including individual landholders, council hearings and public meetings.
