Megan has worked with local authorities in a number of roles over the last ten years. She joined our team from Sustrans where she was Partnership Manager in the South of England. In that role, she supported local authorities on policy and strategy development as well as applications for funding. She also delivered training to officers and elected members on stakeholder engagement and the development of infrastructure plans, and was a regular panel discussion member at development events on topics such as green infrastructure and reinventing the high street.
Her research on walkable distances in site allocations of Local Plans at UWE Bristol expanded to include collaborations with academics and planning practitioners. This value in collaboration underpins her work at What Works Growth where she builds relationships with officers and decision makers in local government.
