Illman Young Landscape Design Ltd , Managing Director
Sue Illman is Managing Director of Illman Young, a landscape architectural practice based in Cheltenham, and was President of the Landscape Institute from 2012-2014. Whilst her practice works across most planning and development sectors, she is probably best known for her advocacy work promoting integrated water management and SuDS through inter-professional collaboration. Catchment management alongside the integration of grey, green and blue in our urban landscape has never been more relevant, and is a subject that Sue continues to promote; a role that has been recognised in her current position as Champion for Flood Mitigation and Resilience on behalf of the Construction Industry Council (CIC). Sue was a co-author of the new SuDS Manual, launched in November 2015 by CIRIA, and is lead author for the new SuDS Construction guidance published by CIRIA in November 2017.
