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.

While we have allowed the state so much power, it must be remembered we are policed by consent. The Met’s actions in Clapham tonight clearly fail that test, both inappropriate and disproportionate. Trampling flowers left in respect. And one them charged with murder #SarahEverard

Another shot from the Virtual Shropshire drone. This is Maws Craft Centre at Jackfield in the Ironbridge Gorge The former Victorian tile factory now houses a fantastic selection of art & craft studios, shops and cafe. Well worth a visit when lockdown is over! #visitshropshire

Beware of a scam by company Hobrace who make wrist, back and elbow supports . They advertise with a London address but are based In Luxembourg. Cancelled my order seconds after placing as realised. No response from customer services via 6 emails and order still processed.

2 of 2. The banks have saved a lot of money by making branch staff redundant. They're not spending that saved money on the people manning their helplines. They've taken the opportunity to cut back on staffing and service.

I was talking to a client y'day about the service we're getting from our banks. We agreed that getting a sensible answer out of them following the closure of local branches is well-nigh impossible. Today I was kept waiting so long that handset battery died just as the man spoke.
