Healy, who is currently on full-time secondment to Thames Water, fought off almost 30 other contenders to win the trip.

Healy will study the Cheonggyecheon River Restoration Scheme, which has seen the waterway reopened after being used as a covered sewer until 2005.

After her trip, Healy will present her findings to the Planning Summer School.

Cath Ranson, chair of the special fund panel, said: "Aside from proposing an interesting new destination for the Scholarship, the panel considered that Clare’s study has much real-time value for Summer School delegates."

Healy said the trip would provide valuable insight into the role of planning in delivering the restoration of blue infrastructure within urban areas.
