  1. Hi @Jemima Line-Symonds Thanks for your post. I think @Birgit Hontzsch will be able to help you here? Many thanks Abi
  2. Hi Robert Thank you for your post. We will absolutely set up some more specific groups when they are needed but at the moment we need to focus on ensuring the groups we have are being used. We will be holding some more specific marketing campaigns to ensure the membership are encouraged to use the platform, this will be a continuous campaign across all availbale medias. Please do encourage any of your contacts, colleagues and fellow professionals to get involved with LI Connect as that will increase support, information sharing and engagement. I will continue to monitor the platform and will create more specific groups as the membership and conversations build. Many thanks, as always. Abi

  4. Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are widely available and have a direct application to landscape, urban design, and planning. They provide innovative survey possibilities: operating in a ‘hover space’ between human scales of landscape observation and low-flying light aircraft, they can provide near-range visual information to complement other sensory data sets. UAVs are a powerful, cost-efficient tool for design, surveillance, and client and public consultation. This new technical information note helps landscape professionals understand the use of UAVs within landscape and systems, and the procurement of UAV services. Read more and download TIN 02/2022 here
  5. Hi Tom I have not had any confirmation that I can sahre others information yet I'm afraid, though I will reply as soon as I have any news. As I mentioned previously, because this is a recruitment process rather than an election we haven't been able to share the details. I have also checked that the application you posted was the one that was assessed fore the position and it appears that the one above was from your previous application, not the latest one. The 2021 application from you included a CV and Personal Statement which is what the decision was based on, as with all the candidates who applied. Many thanks Abi
  6. Good morning Tom Thank you for your post. I wasn't part of the applications process as I wasn't employed by LI at that time but they would have assessed the application that you submitted at that time. Thank you also for shaing your application though please feel free to remove the above post if you do not want that information visable to the other members of LI Connect, as this is an open forum it can be viewed by everyone. I can email and ask them for their permission to share their names, though I will need to fully understand why this information is required and what it will be used for. My request to them will need to be specific about how this information will be used to ensure we are not in any breach of GDPR. I appreciate that it seems like a lot of red tape but we must take GDPR and information security seriously for all our members, partners and stakeholder. Many thanks Abi
  7. Mounting pressure on our skyline and our countryside is generating intense concern about inappropriate high-rise towers and loss of irreplaceable green space. The time has come, argue Create Streets, to revisit traditional intensification, while ensuring that we add to the greenery and biodiversity of our towns and cities.

  8. Good morning Tom Apologies for my delayed reply. The decisions were made based on the applications recieved. They were ananysed and discussed by the panel. The 'votes', which I feel may have been the wrong word to use in this instance, were purely a way of scoring the individual appplications. Please accept my apologies that it has seemed more than it was. The scoring was given based on the information provided in all the applications, skillset and experience. I am still unable to confirm who applied due to GDPR but those involved in the process were the Panel as listed on the website, but for ease I have also listed below: Laura Campbell Melanie Croll Rebecca Knight (Chair) Rufus Howard Sarah Gibson Those who's applications were succesful are (also listed on the website): Mary Fisher Sally Marsh I am sorry that you are disatisfied that you were unsuccesful on this occasion but please do apply for future volunteering roles that you find suitable. Kind regards Abi
  9. Good morning Tom Thank you for your post. I hope you are well. As I previously mentioned, this was not an election, simply an application process which is why we are unable to share the details of those who applied to join. As with any other recruitment process, the other candidates information is protected by GDPR and we are not allowed to share it. If the other applicant's want to come forward and introduce themselves, they are absolutely welcome to do so. We do not use elections for appointments to panels and Committees, these appointments are based on an application process and candidates are selected based on meeting the criteria using the appropriate scoring or grading. The names of members of LVIA panel is available publicly, and shown on the website, which you can view here: https://www.landscapeinstitute.org/technical-committee/ As always, I hope this gives some clarity but please do come back to me at any time. Kind regards Abi
  10. Hi Robert As promised, I have now created this forum. You will find it in Town Centre, under Specialisms. Many thanks Abi

  12. Good morning Robert Thank you for your post and your suggestions. We are somewhat restricted by GDPR which is why we have opt in emails and social media channels but we are constantly running campaigns to encourage more input and participation from everyone. I will of course pass this all back to our internal teams and we will see what we can do to make improvements. With regards to a P2C forum, this is something that we have discussed and will be implementing shortly. I will update you when this has been done. Many thanks again Abi
