Miss Vanessa Ross

HPL Professional Practice Landscape Architecture


I teach Professional Practice for the post graduate Landscape Architecture / Landscape and Urbanism programmes. This draws on my experience in private practice as a Chartered Landscape Architect. 

In addition to teaching, I run a private practice specialising in landscape and public realm design, landscape and townscape assessment (LVIA/TVIA) and act as an expert witness on landscape matters. Projects range across all development sectors and we work for both public an private sector clients. Our sites are often within challenging, sensitive settings such as those with landscape or heritage designations. 

I also regularly undertake Design Reviews as a member of the D:SE Expert Panel, a member of the Landscape Institute Education and Membership Committee and I am a Supervisor and Examiner for the Landscape Institute Pathway to Chartership programme (P2C).
