Project Experience

Naomi has experience of working within a variety of sectors, including waste, oil and gas, mixed use and residential. She has worked for both public and private clients.

Naomi has worked with Dorset County Council (DCC) on several waste management schemes located within Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), including a Waste Management Centre (WMC) in Bridport and a Household Recycling Centre (HRC) in Swanage. The scheme in Bridport involved a large multidisciplinary consultant team working for Dorset Waste Partnership. Naomi was involved in the review of alternative sites, produced and submitted the Screening and Scoping Reports, led the coordination of the Environmental Statement and prepared material for, and attended, several public consultation events. Naomi completed the same tasks for the Swanage HRC. Naomi is also the EIA coordinator for a proposed WMC in Blandford Forum. The Bridport WMC has won several awards, including a RIBA South West Award.

Naomi has worked on several projects for Perenco (UK) Ltd at the Wytch Farm Oilfield in Dorset, which is the largest onshore oilfield in western Europe. Naomi worked on the complex ES to accompany 39 planning applications to DCC to extend the existing planning consents at the oilfield and also worked on the ES and planning application for a new power generation plant.

Naomi has been the environmental lead for several projects for the Environment Agency, including projects as part of their work towards meeting the requirements of the Water Framework Directive. Projects have included a new gauging station in Manaccan, Cornwall and weir removal on the River Wye in Herefordshire. Naomi undertook a 6-month secondment with the National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS) team in Solihull, Birmingham, working on EIA projects. Naomi completed Screening Reports and Consultation Strategies and attended site visits and meetings.

Naomi acted as EIA coordinator for the residential redevelopment of the former Ensleigh MOD administrative site in Bath, coordinating and producing the ES and liaising with the project team. She was also EIA coordinator for the redevelopment of the Pinesgate site close to the centre of Bath, comprising office space, an educational campus, academic accommodation and associated services. These EIA projects both had a limited scope but were complex due to their location within, and adjacent to, several designated areas including the Bath World Heritage Site and the Cotswold AONB.
