Understanding our natural assets and seeing how they can be managed to deliver optimum benefits with available resources is a key part of managing our environment.
As an experienced land manager, I have enough experience of habitat and access management to identify issues and potential on site, and propose and prioritise works. I am also experienced in working with stakeholders, some of whom may have differing demands on a site, to negotiate consensus on plans.
As a graduate ecologist and keen naturalist, I can undertake basic ecological surveys, and have sufficient knowledge across a wide range of flora and fauna to know when more specialist input will be required.
I am experienced in drawing up management prescriptions and work programmes, supervising staff and volunteers and managing contractors.
- I produced a survey of works required on the Trans Pennine Trail in Trafford, using photos and maps to convey information easily. This survey was then used as the basis for an action plan, guiding capital works and volunteer activity
- I have co-ordinated the production of site development plans for urban countryside as part of the Trafford Countryside Management Partnership
- I worked with a wide range of stakeholders to produce a development and management masterplan for the 250ha Bickershaw former colliery site
