Lin Cousins is a town planner by background and worked in both the public and private sectors before helping to set up Three Dragons in 1996. Lin now works across the UK and specialises in planning research, development economics, custom and self-build housing and planning for funding and delivery of affordable housing and strategic infrastructure.
