Joanna Jones BA Hons MSc MRTPI  [ E-mail ]

Joanna is the Managing Partner of JJA Planning and an accomplished planning expert and problem solver.

“My earliest experience with the built environment was at three years old, when I made my first house with LEGO® bricks. It’s been a passion ever since: helping to shape urban developments and guide project teams through the planning process, over hurdles and around road blocks to deliver the best results.

I gained valuable experience at property developers SEGRO Plc and then spent over 12 years at central London-based Martin Robeson Planning Practice, moving through Director appointments to become Managing Director of the Practice, before founding JJA Planning LLP in 2016.

I hold a first class BA Honours degree in Geography from the University of Durham, and qualified as a Chartered Town Planner following the completion of an MSc in Town Planning at The Bartlett, University College London.”
