I have a lot of experience in writing chapters for Environmental Statements and in 2012 I spent about six weeks spread out across the year writing chapters on behalf of a local consultancy run by some friends. They were so successful in winning new work that they had trouble getting it all done, and that’s when I was called in to help out. Instead of working at home, it made sense for me to go into their office, which made a nice change from working alone and I got to spend time with my friends and their staff who are all lovely and super-keen. And we met the deadlines. A win-win situation !
