Frances spent the early part of her career working with house builders and developers in the south of England and as such has a good understanding of the aspirations of clients and local authorities.
Prior to joining Pegasus Group in 2017, Frances worked for a private landscape consultancy where, alongside her work in Landscape Design, she developed an aptitude for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, having undertaken appraisal and critique work for residential and renewable energy projects across England.
Frances aspires to deliver practical and sensitive landscape-led responses to sites; an attitude which has led her to be well regarded for her preparation of Landscape/ Townscape and Visual Impact Assessments and early advice on strategic approaches to site development.
Frances has been involved in landscape and visual appeal work for several years. Recently, this has included the preparation of written representations for an embedded distributed power plant in open countryside. Most recently, Frances attended and attendance at the County Durham Plan Examination hearings on behalf on a client in support of a site proposed for Green Belt release. In addition, Frances works alongside Senior Director, Brian Denney, on public inquiries and is involved with a variety of appeal work associated with large-scale renewable schemes and residential development in sensitive and controversial locations.
