Ashleigh’s in-depth understanding of planning policy provides a key insight to assist in the smooth and successful delivery of projects
Ashleigh graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2015, with a RTPI accredited Masters degree in City Planning and Regeneration. After graduating she joined the London planning team at Peter Brett Associates, where she worked on complex evidence base research for a variety of local authorities in London and beyond. She also provided planning consultancy services on a number of residential and mixed-use schemes throughout London.
During her time at Peter Brett Associates, Ashleigh was seconded for a year to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. She was part of the Planning Policy and Reform team and played a fundamental role in the drafting of the revised National Planning Policy Framework. Ashleigh was involved in the policy areas of design, density and small sites, and she also played an integral role in the consultation process. This experience has given her an in-depth understanding of national policy and Government objectives for delivery.
Ashleigh became a chartered member of the RTPI in February 2018 and keen to utilise her policy knowledge to deliver an exciting range of projects, she joined Iceni’s Urban Mixed-Use Planning Team in May 2018.
Outside of work, Ashleigh is a keen cyclist and enjoys exploring the many craft beer bars and breweries in and around London.
