About

Jennifer Dobbin, Consultant

Jennifer has a talent for distilling complex planning issues down to human-level communications and interactions. With a collaborative approach to public engagement, she seeks to create and document alignment of stakeholder concerns and developer responses to find a balance of ‘give and take’.

With over 2 decades of experience in home-building (operating as Jen Mar Homes Ltd.) and commercial land planning (as Dobbin Consulting Inc.), her many successes reflect her depth of experience in the development industry both in planning and project management.

Project Portfolio

Jennifer has completed many successful applications  for LOC, DP and Greenfield applications as well as negotiations for land sales and heritage loss offset agreements.

difficulty describing myself, because the sort of things that I do are unlikely enough that putting them together is credibility reducing.”
