Anna Sabine-Newlyn

Chief Executive

With a background in political campaigns and the voluntary sector, Anna has worked for MPC across England in a diverse range of sectors. She is particularly interested in the challenges presented by large scale residential development, and has worked on major strategic schemes for a range of clients including Standard Life, the University of Reading, McLaren Property and Mayfield Market Towns. 

As Chief Executive, Anna oversees MPC’s major schemes, as well as supporting the leadership team to grow their individual offices and establish MPC as the leading public affairs consultancy in the planning and development industries.


Highlight at MPC? The highlights are too numerous to mention just one after so many years, but it’s always really rewarding to see staff making progress during their time with us.

Did you know? As a teenager Anna played the bassoon for her county youth orchestra, which took her on tour to South Africa in 1998, playing in locations as diverse as Johannesburg City Hall, a township outside Cape Town and the (very cold as she remembers it) Drakensberg mountains.
