Sue Illman

Sue Illman is Managing Director of Illman Young, a landscape practice based in Gloucestershire and was President of the Landscape Institute from 2012-2014. Sue's practice combines technical solutions with innovative design, and her long-term interest in sustainable drainage has led to this becoming a specialism within the practice.

As President of the Landscape Institute, Sue championed the use of green infrastructure in flood prevention and campaigned for a coordinated response from government towards the threat of floods, raising awareness of the issue among the wider public. This activity complemented the Institute's longer term work on sustainable drainage, water management and water sensitive urban design.
