Helen has almost 20 years’ experience working in both the private and public sectors and joined us from the Newcastle office of Lambert Smith Hampton, where she was over ten years acting as Director and Head of Planning for North East and Yorkshire for the last three years.

Helen’s specialism is in providing commercial planning advice to public and private sector clients for major commercial, residential and mixed-use redevelopment proposals. This includes negotiation on development proposals, planning applications and planning appeals includes expertise for public inquiries. As well as private clients, she has worked for the Crown Estate, the Ministry of Defence and a number of local authorities and education providers.

Outside of the office Helen enjoys spending time with her family and running…. when time allows!
