This is the first in a series of profiles of some of the great people who work at Woods Hardwick. We kick off by meeting one of our Planning team, Alistair Rokas. Alistair joined Woods Hardwick in October 2017 as a Graduate Planner.
What sparked your interest in planning?
I first discovered an interest in planning during an undergraduate visit to Welwyn Garden City (WGC). I was studying Geography at University of Hertfordshire. The visit included discussions regarding how WGC was planned and the underlying ethos that underpinned this process. I was taken aback by what a great place WGC was to live in and this led to my interest in the process of planning and the role it plays in shaping modern society. This interest ultimately flourished and culminated in me undertaking a dedicated post graduate in Sustainable Planning.
