About Stuart

Stuart has over 10 years experience in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. His experience ranges from preparing urban design frameworks, structure plans, and site master plans as well as strategic and conceptual design proposals for streets and public spaces. Often he works collaboratively as part of multi-disciplinary teams on complex urban development, infrastructure and public realm projects.

In addition to his design expertise Stuart has strong written communication and presentation skills that have enabled him to gain considerable experience in the areas of urban and landscape planning, including the formulation of planning strategy and policy, design guidance, assessments of urban amenity, landscape and visual effects, and presentation of expert evidence at council hearings for plan changes and resource consents.

Stuart bridges professional and disciplinary divides between planning and design, strategy and implementation, and public and private interests, to deliver higher quality, more liveable cities and urban places.
