Neil McKenna

Senior Planner

As a Senior Planner Neil brings an optimistic and conscientious approach to projects, identifying and understanding key interests and issues and balancing these with the strategic objectives.

He has a particular interest in connecting with local communities and those impacted by development, encouraging people to think about the built environment and how they can instigate change and challenge the status quo.

This enthusiasm for genuine engagement has led him to Leeds where he has embarked on studying for a PhD alongside his role at Tibbalds. His research explores community-led housing; what works and how groups come together to enable collective decision-making. Aside from helping to create people-led places, Neil also enjoys listening to, producing and playing music.
