"Having an idea, creating a vision is the very essence of what planning is about. There’s nothing quite like capturing that magic."
Ann Skippers is a chartered town planner with over twenty-five years experience in a career that has spanned local government, academia and private consultancy.
Perhaps best known for her role as President of the Royal Town Planning Institute in 2010, Ann offers a wide range of consultancy services to local authorities, the private sector, parish and town councils and community organisations.
Ann specialises in neighbourhood planning and can act as the independent examiner for neighbourhood plans and community rights orders. Ann also offers a critical friend/health check service to ensure that your plan or order stands the best chance of success at examination and is ideally placed to provide support and advice to community groups wishing to embark on neighbourhood planning. Ann is a member of the NPIERS Panel of Examiners.
Ann also specialises in bespoke training and support. Recently Ann has provided training on neighbourhood planning, appeals, including writing representations and costs applications, as well as development management updates which have proved popular with local authorities and the private sector alike.
For local authorities Ann can act as a critical friend, providing additional capacity and support in local planning policy and related services. She offers bespoke training and support helping officers and members to get to grips with the latest reforms and changes to the planning system.
We offer a wide range of consultancy services which include feasibility studies and planning applications and appeals. Whether you wish to see what the potential of your land or building is, submit an application or simply need advice when you hit the planning buffers, we are here to help.
