I am a Chartered Town Planner, and have been working in the planning profession for over 20 years both in private practice and local authorities.
I specialise in many areas, including working in heritage environments, rural planning, farming diversification, appeals, enforcement, third party planning objections, conservation and environmental planning, small scale rural housing projects and neighbourhood planning.
I set up my own planning consultancy in 2012 and provide a planning consultancy service to a range of clients, ranging from individuals, to local businesses including local architects, surveying companies and larger organisations such as the National Trust and Northumberland National Park. I also work with a number of Town and Parish Councils who are preparing neighbourhood plans.
I have a particular interest in heritage, rural and community planning.
