Clive Anstey. Landscape and Resource Consultant – Landscape and Resource Planning
I worked with Fiona Gordon on Horizons One Plan over an extended period. As a landscape planner and ‘expert witness’ I have worked with many planners over the last 15 years. Prior to becoming an independent consultant I was national manager of planning for the Department of Conservation.
Fiona is one of the most astute planners I have worked with. Others will no doubt endorse this. In my own experience however I found Fiona particularly skilled in mediation. Fiona has a quick mind and the ability to listen to conflicting viewpoints while developing an integrated and inclusive overview, a special skill that only comes with experience.
Jeff Baker. Leisure Assets Planner – Palmerston North City Council
I worked with Fiona on rolling out a range of improvements for Peren Park in Palmerston North. Her strong skillset helped set the platform for our project and I found her enthusiasm, positive attitude and willingness to work in partnership were personal qualities that enabled us to achieve more for the community in a short period of time.
