I founded the Practice in 1983. Now, in the main, I supervise major commissions. Amongst other things, I appear as expert witness at Public Local Inquiries relating to major planning proposals as well as the preparation of development plans, and regularly participate at Examinations in Public.  I am also a specialist in proposals relating to ‘Spanish polytunnels’ and associated aspects of soft fruit growing in the UK.  Planning is my passion, and I like to keep fully up to date with the latest development practices, as well as being involved in many community and business groups - I’m Past President of the (then) Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Past Chairman of the Environment Committee and Newark Civic Trust.  I’m currently on the Board of Nottingham Express Transit.  I am a fully accredited member of the RTPI and a member of the TCPA.

A quirky fact about me: My inglorious rugby career ended abruptly after I executed a spectacular dive to ‘score’ on the 22 metre line, having mistaken it for the try line.


In the increasingly complex world of planning and development, we are here to take away your worry and uncertainty.
