RTPI South West Regional Activities Committee
CPD Working Group

Tim has spent the majority of his career working as a Planner for various local authorities in Somerset and until March 2019 was Head of Service covering the area of both Taunton Deane and West Somerset, where he oversaw the delivery of major housing growth leading to Taunton's designation as a Garden Town. He has also carried out service reviews and has been a Planning Advisory Service Peer.

Tim has recently set up his own Consultancy providing a range of planning services to private clients as well as local authorities. He is currently advising a district council in the south west on Heritage at Risk matters and is also working on a place-making strategy and associated policies for a unitary authority in the south east.

Tim is new to the RAC and is looking forward to engaging with other planners from across the region promoting the positive role of planning.
