Ruth established RJP in August 2011 having previously worked at senior levels at Land Use Consultants in Glasgow and Arup in Manchester.  Ruth wanted to create a practice where town planning would be the principle discipline, where the business scale would mean clients would always have access to a personal service from planning experts, and where it would be possible to foster a team spirit where hard work and talent would be recognised.

Something interesting: In June 2016, Ruth cycled 480km with Club Peloton from Copenhagen to Berlin to raise funds for Coram, a UK adoption charity which offers direct, practical help and emotional support to vulnerable children, young people and their families.
