Congratulations to Urbis Planning Director, first NSW female Planning Partner and executive Board member, Clare Brown on receiving the prestigious PIA Helen Proudfoot Women in Planning Award.
The Dr Helen Proudfoot Women in Planning Award recognises women’s contributions to planning outcomes, policy and practice. Dr Helen Proudfoot demonstrated a tireless determination to enhance planning policy and practice through a commitment to understanding and celebrating ‘place’ and working across disciplines to develop integrated and place-based plans for Metropolitan Sydney.
She is a highly respected and accomplished planner with a longstanding career across all levels of government and industry. Having held senior management roles in several organisations, Clare is currently recognised for her expertise and dedication as a Director of the Board at Urbis. She has both a town planning and legal background, and her skill is demonstrated through her regular appearance as an expert witness in the Land and Environment Court and as an alternate member of Sydney and Regional Planning Panels.
