ASHBY

MARK BELIEVES THE KEY TO COMING UP WITH AN EFFECTIVE SOLUTION IS TO THOROUGHLY UNDERSTAND THE CLIENT'S POINT OF VIEW.

Mark is responsible for growing our Wellington office and building relationships with our clients. He has 30+ years' experience gained in consulting and local, regional and central government. Mark's skills include impact assessment, district and regional planning and preparing and presenting expert evidence.

 

He still has direct input to some of our clients' projects where his background in working on extremely complicated consent acquisition projects is invaluable. Major projects that Mark has worked on in the past include acquiring consents for prisons, youth justice facilities, wind farms and central city office developments.

 

An important part of Mark's role as a professional planner involves him acting as an expert witness at council hearings and the Environment Court. Keen to keep himself on the cutting edge, Mark has completed the Ministry for the Environment sponsored “Making Good Decisions” programme, which certifies him as an independent hearings commissioner.

 

Mark was a member of the NZ Wind Energy Association Board from 2004-2007, and received an award from the Resource Management Law Association (RMLA) for policy work in relation to planning for wind energy. He is a longstanding member of the Wellington Branch committee of the New Zealand Planning Institute (NZPI), and also a regular member of interview panels for planners seeking full membership of the Institute.
