She worked for the Welsh Government for seven years where she advised Welsh Ministers on spatial planning and sustainable development and took forward Wales’ first Spatial Plan. She also has extensive private sector experience, including project managing a number of large strategic planning projects in the UK and abroad.

When not planning Abigail is usually found enjoying family life, planning her next holiday or sipping a glass of red!



We’ve also recently welcomed Claire to our team – we’re just waiting to update our photos.  Claire is a chartered town planner with 17 years experience working for high profile commercial clients as a lead planning consultant.

When not planning Claire is pretty tied up keeping up with her 4 year old twins and trying to keep them out of trouble.  If she gets a chance for some peace and quiet, it usually involves a G&T!



We’re all very pleased to meet you!  As well as our planning experience, we are a team who likes to get involved.
