PLANNER PROFILE – Getting to know Senior Planner, Kate Girling

Senior planner, Kate Girling, Rural SolutionsMeet Kate Girling, one of our Senior Planners.

Kate joined the team in 2015 following a career at Indigo Planning in Leeds. After studying Human Geography at university, Kate went onto complete a Masters in Town Planning.

The best thing about working at Rural… Aside from the great people, I would say the best thing about working at Rural Solutions is the diverse range of clients and the broad spectrum of projects, ranging from individual new dwellings through to whole estate plans. The collective experience amongst the organisation is vast and makes for a very knowledgeable team.

Favourite project… Securing full planning and listed building consent for the Nevill Holt Opera Theatre – conversion of a listed stable block for a permanent opera theatre.

If you gave up your day job… My dream job would be to move to Thailand and become a scuba diving instructor. Although more realistically I’d become an estate agent so I could snoop around people’s houses.  I consider stalking Rightmove, a hobby!

When you’re not planning, you’re… A mum and wife juggling the work life balance.

Something we may not know about you… I am a PADI certified rescue diver with 80 dives logged.  I also have a full motorbike license and use to own a motorbike (pre-children!)
