I have undertaken specialist research, written and lectured on a range of topics over decades for both public and private sector organisations.

 

At the present time I am undertaking research into:

  • The Economic Value of Holiday Home Parks in Britain

  • The Role of Rural Workspace in Rural Regeneration

Recent Lectures have included:

  • 'From Cowsheds to Castles - Rural Regeneration in the UK' - (on behalf of Ruraldania in Denmark - Oct 2009)

  • 'Improving the Capacity of the Planning System' - (for RICS August 2009)

  • 'Rural Planning Policy in LDF's' - for the RTPI (March 2009)

  • 'Paying for Permissions - It Started with a Fee' - (RICS South West 2010)

  • 'Planning for Rural Regeneration - Opportunities and Constraints' - (RICS 2010)

  • 'Rural Regeneration through Positive Planning' - (CLA/RTPI 2010)

  • 'RTPI North West - Rural Update' - (January 2011)

  • 'Public Participation in Planning' - (UCLAN March 2011)

  • 'Rural Planning Issues - One Day Training Course' - (Kaplan Hawksmere for Basingstoke Borough Council Planning Department October 2011)

  • 'The National Planning Policy Framework - An Overview' - (UCLAN November 2011)

I have made submissions on a variety of Government consultation documents  including PPS4 (2009); the Matthew Taylor Report (2008); PPS7 (2004) and sought the extension of existing planning permissions (revitalisation of Section 73) by writing to the Minister in December 2008.

 

I have also chaired professional meetings during 2011 on behalf of the RICS concerning the Localism Bill (now Act) and the NPPF.

 

I would be very happy to provide a specific quotation for bespoke pieces of research work or provide a lecture on tourism or rural regeneration issues.
