New chair at Yorkshire Branch of Royal Town Planning Institute

Leader: Jennifer Winyard is Strategic Land and Planning Manager for our northern operations

The theme of housebuilding will be high on the agenda for the new chair of the Royal Town Planning Institute’s Yorkshire branch.

Taking up the post following confirmation at the group’s AGM on Tuesday November 18th is Jennifer Winyard, who is Strategic Land and Planning Manager for our northern operations.

Jennifer (31), who lives in Leeds, will be in the chair until December 2015. She has promised to focus on housing supply as well as highlighting the wider benefits of planning expertise to promote greater cooperation between different professions.

“I’m very proud to be voted in as chair of the RTPI in Yorkshire,” she said. “It’s through housebuilders, like Linden Homes, getting actively involved with the industry conversation at local and national level that we can spur action on issues like providing enough new homes.

“I think delivering more housing for families deserves particular attention at the moment, not just because of my housebuilder background but because it’s going to be a big topic of debate at the general election next year.”

Jennifer is a Chartered Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI); has an MSc in Town and Country Planning; and is also chair of the Yorkshire and North East branch of Women in Property.
