Nesh Pillay

Light Rail Transport Consenting Lead, Auckland Transport

Nesh Pillay is a passionate proponent of consent, professionally as Light Rail Transport Consenting Lead for Auckland Transport, and personally as a woman living the challenges and opportunities of Auckland while planning for a better one as Chair of the Auckland/Northland Branch of the NZ Planning Institute.

Born in apartheid era South Africa, nine year old Nesh emigrated and grew up as a proud kiwi.  The communities she lives inform her work as planner who is firmly focussed on generating community participation in city making.  At the heart of her approach is collaboration, which attracted her to Broad-ly Speaking and reflects her enthusiastic commitment to Auckland Transport’s Diversity and Inclusion Leadership team.
