Laura Dodds-Hebron


Laura is an urban planner who is motivated by creating places where communities can flourish. With degrees in urban regeneration and international development and a background in communications and engagement, she devised, designed and delivered the engagement strategy for the innovative Fosters Estate co-design.

Laura was project leader for the award-winning Galway City Centre Public Realm Strategy and the Limerick Laneways project which established the practice as a leading light in urban design work in Ireland. She has a strong track record of setting spatial strategies, visions and masterplans which respond to the local character and context, with work in market towns, villages and cities across the UK.

Laura took the initiative in the first weeks of the Covid-19 pandemic to research and mastermind a hugely positive shift to digital and virtual consultation that endures today.
