My Experience

Writing and policy development

This year I have been working on strategic business cases related to stormwater issues, a dog control policy and bylaw review, a climate change policy, a community engagement plan for a stormwater strategy, and a grants policy and application process. I have also provided research support for the completion of freshwater provisions.

​Previous work has included reports, business cases, submissions and submission summaries, LTP consultation documents, asset management plans and infrastructure strategies, bylaws and statements of proposals.


I have edited a broad range of council documents, including business cases, asset management plans, conference papers, ​regional land transport plans, reserve management plans, financial strategies, annual plans, regional policy statements and resource management plan changes, state of the environment reports and council reports.

“Your contribution was illustrated by the way you grappled with the dog control policy and bylaw. You remained committed to high quality community engagement through being professional, actively listening and seeking the best solution for our city. You have promoted and demonstrated personal leadership and positive attitudes.”
