In 2001, after 12 years working as a planning and enforcement officer for various local Councils, Heather established Forester Town Planning Consultancy. The company was incorporated in 2012 to become Forester TPC Limited.
During her 30 years in the planning world, she has established good links with other professionals in the construction industry working regularly with surveyors, engineers, flood specialists, heritage, environmental, archaeological, and other consultants, and specialist designers, or solicitors who can provide the specialised and technical information for any planning application, as is necessary. She also has a good working relationship with local planning authorities and local Councillors to give the best opportunity for success.
Heather is also a member of the South West Design Review Panel who provide impartial expert advice to applicants and local authorities on design issues in relation to important new development schemes and proposals for important public spaces, including both significant minor applications, major planning applications and pre-application development proposals.
Jeremy, has been a surveyor for 36 years in both the public and private sectors and has vast experience in all land survey matters. A Member of RICS for 18 years, he joined the company in 2016.
He has worked on large projects such as a hydrographic and topographic survey of a river for a flood alleviation scheme in Wales, a topographic survey for a major relief road in Cornwall, pipeline surveys and a 50km topographic survey of a major river in Derbyshire as well as smaller topographic and measured building surveys for projects such as the redevelopment or refurbishment of buildings, recording historic shopfronts in a town centre, house surveys for extension proposals, and the redevelopment of an old church near Broadclyst.
