Alan qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1993 and has spent the majority of his career in the development and planning sector. He has been self- employed since 1999 following careers with two leading firms of surveyors in Norwich.
Alan started work in property and planning in Gloucestershire before moving to Norfolk in the 1980’s. He has considerable practical experience in the promotion of land for development and inclusion in Local Plans and in submitting and managing planning applications through to determination.
Alan works for both private and corporate clients, and has a good working relationship with specialist contractors who provide input and reports required in the planning process and with other significant players such as affordable housing providers and builders and developers.
Throughout Alan's career he has also specialised in issues arising from property boundaries and works closely with our Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team in the preparation of measured plans and reports for boundary disputes and Land Registry compliant plans. He also works closely with our teams advising on S106 Planning Obligation Agreements, Certificates of Lawful Use and in planning enforcement matters.
