Kathryn Spinks-Dear

Senior Economics Planner

Kathryn joined the ET Planning team in September 2021 based at the Oxford office. She joined the team after completing her Masters Degree at the London School of Economics where she studied regional and urban planning. During her studies Kathryn focused on the impacts of urban planning and created a manifesto for a just city as well as a dissertation on the modern day influence on travel to work patterns.

Kathryn works closely with other members of the ET Planning Team working on economic based planning applications and planning appraisals – supporting clients to understand the possibilities, and restrictions, for land development.

Outside of the office, Kathryn can often be found planning her next travel adventures having already visited 60 countries and all the continents. Kathryn also managed to take her studies across the world having moved from Australia, where she grew up, and moved to Belfast where she studied for her Geography degree at the Queen’s University. She also took a semester of her degree at the University of Amsterdam before continuing her studies and completing her Masters degree in London. Kathryn also loves to read and has over 300 books!
