Founded by Judith Norris in 2014, The Rural Planning Practice has gained a reputation to provide rural planning solutions.
Having graduated from Reading University with an honours degree in Estate Management in 1975, Judith became an Associate of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 1977 and was elected to fellowship in 1987.
Starting 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. Judith was responsible for managing a variety of iconic properties including The White Cliffs of Dover, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and Cotehele.
In 1987, Judith set up her own practice dealing predominantly with rural estate management, rural planning and compulsory purchase matters, particularly in the South of England. Following on from the success, Judith set up the The Rural Planning Practice.
