Pia has worked in the transport planning industry for nearly eight years. Within this time she has gained a Masters degree in Transport Planning and is chartered through CILT. As a consultant, Pia has a wide breadth of transport planning experience however now specialises in development planning and highways advice.
She has worked for and on behalf of public sector clients, including working for National Highways where she completed a secondment in the Spatial Planning department, looking after the busiest region around the M25. She has also worked on behalf of many private sector clients, where she has supported a wide range of development schemes from strategic local plan residential sites to employment and retail sites where she has had to communicate and negotiate with statutory consultees and other stakeholders. She has strong experience in producing supporting technical documents and a passion in Travel Planning and the formulation and implementation of supporting strategies for a range of clients.
Pia takes a keen interest in the ever changing world of development planning, where she most recently was an avid member of the “Fixing Transport Assessments” working group, ran by Hampshire County Council and the Department for Transport. She loves a networking event and makes the most of sharing experience and best practise with others.
Aside from development planning, Pia’s other passions are her dog Tilly and enjoying the outdoors. She recently competed the Great North Run for Cancer Research, and is always planning her next challenge or adventure!
