Virginia specialises in Feasibility Analysis, Economic Development, Highest and Best Use Studies, Financial Reporting, Affordable Housing Studies, Voluntary Planning Agreements and Market Research and Demand Studies.

Virginia’s understands the importance of delivering a successful revitalisation outcome for urban locations. Virginia has gained experience in how to achieve desirable development outcomes that generate additional housing (private and affordable), customers and centre activity, a careful appreciation of the local market, planning controls and development economics is required. Knowledge of these factors allows Virginia to provide advice on the constraints and ‘tipping point’ of local planning controls with respect to when development will be incentivised or conversely under what circumstances sites will remain undeveloped.

Prior to re-joining HillPDA in 2012, Virginia spent over four years working in the United Kingdom at The London Borough of Hackney (one of the five leading ‘Olympic Boroughs’). She provided advice for project management, development feasibilities, affordable housing appraisals, market research and valuations across commercial, retail, and residential properties.

Virginia is also part of management team, providing leadership to the wider team and management of efficient business processes. Virginia is a competitive rower and represents Mosman Rowing Club.
