Starting with Purdon Planning as an Urban Planning Assistant in early 2018 Rachelle has since graduated from the University of Canberra with a Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning. Rachelle’s passion for town planning began in high school when her Year 11 geography class began studying world cities and how population pressures, climate change and infrastructure all highlight the need for effective planning.
Now part of the team as Graduate Urban Planner Rachelle has been involved in a range of new projects for up and coming developments around Canberra and plays an integral part of the team involved in the preparation of WA and DA reports, site due diligence and community consultation.
Rachelle’s favourite part about working at Purdon Planning is being involved in urban renewal projects experiencing the benefits of good urban design and place making. As a team we are excited to see what the future holds for her as her career as an Urban Planner continues to grow!
