  • A passion for residential masterplanning, and understanding of good practice urban design principles
  • Experience of the Housebuilding Sector (Private and Public) in relation to residential masterplanning layouts and planning process
  • Excellent CAD knowledge and ability to transfer sketch layouts to full CAD planning site layout plans with an awareness of the associate technical requirements. (Ideally using Vectorworks but not essential).
