John Ingham - Associate Director of Landscape and
Environmental Planning
Stephenson Halliday are delighted to announce the appointment of
John Ingham as Associate Landscape Director in their newly established
Yorkshire office. John, a Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute,
joins the team from Hanson UK where for the last four years he has
been their Principal Landscape Architect and Restoration Manager
(northern region). Prior to this he had worked for over 15 years in private
practice as a landscape consultant and specialised in LVIA and EIA for
minerals, renewables and built development projects; in relation to
which he was regularly called upon to act as an expert witness.
At Hanson John was responsible for the planning, design, implementation and management of many major
restoration schemes – several of which have won MPA biodiversity awards or commendations during his
stewardship. He was also responsible for managing the restoration budgets for over 40 operational, dormant
and restored sites totaling in excess of £30m. He is therefore well versed in the need to deliver value for
money whilst maintaining stakeholder expectations.
His experience in the minerals sector includes:
• Landscape and biodiversity planning and design;
• Preparation, tender and coordination of earthworks contracts, planting schemes and landscape management works;
• LVIA and EIA coordination;
• Preparation and implementation of aftercare and management plans including revenue generating uses;
• Restoration budget estimation and management;
• Preparation of annual reports and liaison with mineral planning authorities;
• Stakeholder engagement and community liaison; and
• Biodiversity Action Plans.
With an increasing focus on the requirement to deliver measurable biodiversity and environmental net
gain, there has never been more attention on the design, planning and restoration of minerals sites. John’s
commercial experience coupled with the team’s collective and broad ranging skills required by the minerals
industry (including an experienced pool of CAD, LSS, visualisation and GIS professionals) will appeal to
existing and new clients alike.
Commenting on his new role John said ‘I’m thrilled to be joining Stephenson Halliday and helping to expand
the geographical presence of the business into Yorkshire. I look forward to helping our clients to maintain
the supply of minerals necessary for the construction of the nation’s infrastructure whilst at the same time
delivering a positive legacy of extraction on our landscapes and their biodiversity.’
