Lucy is a senior consultant at Volterra, responsible for the day to day management of many of our transport and development/planning projects.
She is experienced in analysing the effects of transport infrastructure and how it changes potential patterns of development. She was project manager on a project for Stoke-on-Trent City Council supporting their bid for a HS2 station in the city and also helped to produce a series of reports to strengthen Sheffield City Council’s case for a High Speed Rail station in the city centre rather than a parkway station. Lucy also managed a project for Camden Town Unlimited which successfully challenged the proposed HS1-HS2 Link through Camden.
Lucy is experienced in quantifying the impacts of developments on the local area. She has worked on a number of projects in the economic modelling, policy research and development and planning areas. Recent relevant projects include: supporting a successful application for a luxury hotel in Westminster and assessing the socio-economic impact of Battersea Power Station. Lucy is currently working on a project evaluating the development impact of London Paramount, a proposed major leisure resort in North Kent.
Lucy managed a project for Crossrail investigating whether the construction of major infrastructure has greater economic benefits than investment in a series of smaller infrastructure projects. The report focuses on the impact of major project experience on firms’ export potential, skills and training, supply chain integration and whether major projects allow for greater regional distribution and SMEs.
As one of Volterra’s senior consultants Lucy conducts ongoing work for property management company Strutt & Parker on the economic outlook of the UK.
Lucy holds a BA in Economics and Management from the University of Oxford.
