Sally has close to 15 years’ experience working in the Private sector as a Planning Consultant. She has an excellent track record of providing clients with succinct advice on the prospects of securing planning permission for a range of uses across all sectors.

Sally has been involved in numerous developments that have been complex and challenging, all of which benefitted from her meticulous project management skills. One such example is when she successfully advised a private client on the processes to take when navigating the complex ‘Para 80’ route on a site in a Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The application was approved within 6 and a half weeks under delegated authority, and the scheme was labelled by the Council as being ‘truly outstanding and innovative’, reflecting ‘the highest standards in architecture’.  

Sally has worked on a wide portfolio of projects across the country, including residential, pubs and retail and has experience of dealing with complex heritage and enforcement matters. She specialises in dealing with large dwellings, particularly in London and the home counties. Given her expertise in this area, and her ability to build positive relationships with Council Officers, she has been asked to sit on RBKC's Peer Review Panel, providing feedback on their services.

Clients find her calm, unflappable, and friendly approach a breath of fresh air.

Outside of work, Sally likes spending time with her husband, and little boys Fred and Charlie (who keep her on her toes!) She loves spending time outdoors and can be found walking, cycling, or running (mostly after the kids). She absolutely loves all things interior design and is regularly recruited by friends to help re-design/decorate their houses!
