Our Team

Judith Norris

Having started her practical training as a land agent with Strutt and Parker on the Beaulieu Estate, Judith then worked for the National Trust in Cornwall and the South-East region managing a variety of iconic properties including The White Cliffs of Dover, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and Cotehele. Judith has found her land management experience including forestry to be an important background to the rural planning work that has been her specialism for over twenty years.

Her postgraduate training includes a PG Dip in the Conservation of Historic Gardens and Cultural Landscapes, and a masters degree in the Conservation of Historic Buildings, both from the University of Bath. She is a full member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation as well as the British Institute of Agricultural Consultants.

Extracurricular activities have included serving on the CLA Policy Committee, and Business and Rural Economy Committee; she chaired the CLA Kent Committee, as well as the CLA’s Planning Working Group and Equestrian Working Group.

Judith also served on the Conservation Committee of the Gardens Trust and is a trustee of the Toll Rides Off Road Trust.
