I’m Jan Brooke. I’m the Director of Jan Brooke Environmental Consultant Ltd.
A geographer / soil and water engineer by background, my working life has been spent at the interface between land and water, initially on flood defence and coast protection then moving into the ports, dredging and navigation world more than 25 years ago.
