Rooted in the Countryside

David Collier Rural Planning is a planning consultancy specialising in rural development, including development on farms.

We practise mainly in the West Midlands, but are prepared to take on projects elsewhere in the country, Within two months of launch, the Practice had clients in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

David Collier is a Chartered Town Planner experienced in all aspects of planning as it affects agriculture, horticulture and rural estates, and has a decade’s experience as National Planning Adviser to the National Farmers’ Union of England and Wales.

We believe…

The aim of a planning consultancy should be to secure the best and most appropriate development for a site, meeting the client’s requirements in a way that respects the natural and other constraints of the location and takes account of the views and needs of others.

This is normally best achieved through negotiation rather than confrontation. The aim of David Collier Rural Planning is to secure the best outcome in every case, providing the highest levels of service along the way.

Client Feedback
Have you used David Collier Rural Planning? We would love to have your feedback.


Our latest success was with a proposal to change a small, former quarry into an extension of a domestic garden. It has been approved with acceptable conditions, so our clients are pleased. But we're only halfway there. We now need separate approval for infilling the hole.

Why not take some time out from arguing over pasta, and instead marvel at just how satisfying pasta machines are?

You're welcome.

NHS land is being sold off to build unaffordable housing. The housing crisis is pushing NHS workers like nurses out of London, say @theRCN. @wheatleyhanna
