    As a professional body and educational charity, the organisation works to protect, conserve and enhance the natural and built environment for the public benefit. The LI champions landscape and the landscape profession, through advocacy and support to our members, in order to inspire great places where people want to live, work and visit.

    Mary O'Connor, Associate Director

    Mary’s expertise is in landscape planning and design, environmental impact assessment and LVIA, green infrastructure and landscape design for new developments, and expert witness to public inquiries. Her experience extends across the energy, infrastructure, industrial, commercial, minerals, highways and housing sectors, and involves public consultation and working with local communities.

    "Our remit covers the quality and conservation of the landscape. We think this is a very exciting project for improving the landscape condition and scenic quality in our most precious places. My hope is that we will make a real difference to these landscapes and for the people who live and work in them or use them for leisure and enjoyment."
