Laura Gannon

Managing Consulting - Planning, Risk & Resilience
Stantec Australia

I am a leading risk and resilience land use planning practitioner with extensive experience in the areas of planning policy, strategic and statutory planning accumulated via a number of senior and leadership positions.

My key passion lies in the integration of natural hazard risk management into land use planning policy, with a particular emphasis on bushfire risk and resilience, floodplain risk management and climate adaptation. I focus on rationalising and reconciling the unique challenges associated with integrating land use planning, emergency management and hazard mitigation processes to create adaptive, resilient communities.

I was awarded Queensland and Australian Young Planner of the Year in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
