DR ROB ROWLANDS

DIRECTOR

BSc (Hons) PhD MCIEEM CEnv

Rob is a proven expert witness, working alongside many of the UK’s leading barristers, planning consultants and architects.  His approach is to provide clients with experienced, commercially-focused and pragmatic advice which enables them to navigate the UK’s legal and planning systems and to deliver their projects as efficiently as possible.  He is a strong negotiator and facilitator; balancing the needs of the client and project with the requirements of legislation and policy.  In a professional career which spans over 18 years he has provided strategic advice and managed multi-disciplinary inputs on a wide-range of projects including numerous strategically-important urban extension and regeneration projects in several towns and cities across the UK.  Recently, he has navigated clients through the implications of emerging case law as it relates to the Habitat Regulations, the evolution of district licensing with respect to great crested newts and the application of biodiversity off-setting metrics.  He has provided inputs with respect to numerous formal Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs); including preparing strategies and mechanisms to address impacts such as devising planning conditions and S106 obligations.  His experience of multi-disciplinary working enables him to contribute significantly to ensuring that integrated technical solutions are achieved wherever possible.
