Colin has over 20 years of experience as a private practice planning consultant. He’s responsible for leading the Planning team in the South West, and his experience focuses on directing multidisciplinary teams in a way that draws large-scale, multi-ownership projects together to unlock development.
Over his career, Colin has championed the need for the planning process to support the delivery of developments—whether housing, commercial, or industrial. His approach seeks out practical solutions to meet the operational needs of his clients.
From setting promotional strategies to securing an early planning permission, Colin’s project experience reflects his dedication to finding a solution for his clients. Recently, he’s provided lead planning guidance to a multi-application and multi-developer team for Staple Grove, Taunton Garden Town, and he’s acted as lead consultant and planning expert witness for Homelands Farm, Bishop’s Cleeve.
Outside of work, Colin enjoys spending time with his family in the Cotswolds. He also enjoys restoring and racing vintage cars and has been fortunate enough to win a championship or two. When time allows, long distance cycling helps to unwind.
