Linda Martin-Chew

Director, Plan-it Rural

Linda has worked as an urban, rural and health planner in Victorian peri-urban councils for many years. Her professional qualifications include an undergraduate degree in Ecology and a Masters’ degree in Community Development.

Underpinning Linda’s expertise and passion for rural planning is her experience farming horses and cattle on a 24- hectare property in central Victoria for over a decade.

Five years ago, Linda teamed up with Annemaree Docking to create the consultancy, Plan-it Rural, allowing Linda to put her experience to work in the rural context that so passionately interests her. Plan-it Rural assists farmers in achieving regulatory approvals to put their ideas into practice, and advocate strongly for more regulatory and policy support for farmers in the challenging peri-urban context.
