The Landscape Institute has announced the appointment of three new fellows in the latest of its twice-yearly elections to fellowship.
Penny Beckett FLIPenny’s career has spanned the private, public and voluntary sectors in various roles in the UK and overseas. From 2009 she chose to devote her professional time to the Institute, first as NW Branch Chair and Rep., and then as the Institute’s Treasurer. She brought vigilance to the latter role by ensuring, for example, that the finance working group was recast as a formal subcommittee of the Board.
She also led the working group tasked with securing a future for the Institute’s library and archive. This objective was achieved last year when both were transferred to the University of Reading’s Special Collections at the Museum of English Rural Life.
Mayda’s career has covered many types of landscape projects, advising on a range of commissions including site feasibility analysis, urban and landscape design, regeneration strategies, master planning and environmental assessment.
Mayda has specialised in landscape and visual impact assessment, enabling her to coordinate the assessment documents for submission of the DCO for Hinkley Point C Power Station. Mayda has contributed a substantial amount of voluntary time to the advancement of the LI through her roles as Examiner, Supervisor and Mentor on the P2C.
