Managing Director, HPW Architecture

In my 20 plus years of working in architecture and the property industry I have never experienced a public consultation event like the one Vicky created for Higher Newham Farm. Vicky designed and delivered a fantastic, welcoming environment, full of well presented information and ideas, which meant the 3 day event was exceptionally well attended by several thousand people.

This helped significantly to generate the overwhelming support that the project received. We should see more public consultation done this way. Genuine consultation which also went on to significantly inform the plans for the village.
