I am a walking and cycling infrastructure specialist and a chartered town planner. I have more than 11 years’ experience and a record of securing funding for and delivering award-winning walking and cycling infrastructure across the North West and Yorkshire.

Projects I have worked on include a number of ambitious walking and cycling infrastructure schemes for Salford City Council, one of the foremost local authorities on walking and cycling infrastructure nationally. I led a multi-million-pound programme to upgrade Salford’s traffic-free network, designed to meet the diverse needs of users and to maximise the numbers of people choosing active travel methods. I also worked on Chapel Street East Phase 1 which was awarded the Healthy Streets Proposal of the Year Award.

I am passionate about identifying cost effective walking and cycling infrastructure solutions to ensure active travel is safe and accessible for the communities in which they will serve.
