Sam’s guest for this episode of Hitting The High Notes is Anna Rose. After eschewing a career in fashion, Anna worked as a legal advisor at the National Farmers Union before joining Rugby Borough Council and working her way to become Head of Planning & Culture.

After a spell as Service Director at Milton Keynes Council, Anna has since 2017 been the Head of the Planning Advisory Service at the Local Government Association. Sam and Anna’s conversation takes in the relationships and skills required to plan strategically and deliver major new development; leadership and systems thinking, and LPA recruitment practices.
