From Farm to Surveyor: A Unique Perspective
Before entering the surveying profession, Tim rolled up his sleeves and worked hands-on in farming and land management. His experiences spanned his native Dartmoor, the picturesque landscapes of South Wales, and various corners of New Zealand. This blend of academic, professional, and practical knowledge equips Tim to provide advice deeply rooted in practical understanding.

Passion for Rural Resilience
Tim’s dedication to rural development is unwavering. With Britain’s changing landscape post-Brexit, our rural and agricultural sectors face the challenge of finding new paths to maintain their viability. National and local planning policies may support rural development, but the planning system itself often hinders economic growth in rural areas.

He contributes to search and rescue operations along the River Severn and its expansive 20,000km² catchment area. Tim’s skills cover High Risk Missing Persons, flood response, and boat rescues, assisting those in need along the Severn and across the region.
