Francesca Prestinoni, Senior Sustainability Consultant at Hilson Moran, has been selected to join the 2022-23 NLA Expert Panel on Planning. The panel brings together industry experts from across the NLA membership to look at the rapidly changing shape of London’s planning environment and examine spatial and strategic plans at a local as well as city-wide level.
Part of a new intake for 2022, Francesca will work with the group to provide thought-leadership on planning, design, development and construction in London, as well as responding to emerging policies and trends.
Francesca brings a wealth of experience from across a range of environmental and sustainability disciplines and has played a key role in supporting the planning applications of a wide variety of high profile UK projects. Her specialities include energy masterplanning, energy modelling, decarbonisation plans, greenhouse gasses and carbon assessments, renewable energy feasibility studies and district heat networks.
Speaking about the appointment, Francesca said:
“I am delighted to be a part of this diverse group of industry experts, who are able to bring their experience to bear on one of the key issues facing London and the UK.
“By informing planning guidance, introducing effective retrofitting interventions, low carbon and renewable technologies, we can make a real difference in reducing the carbon footprint of both existing and new developments across the capitol”.
