Development Planning Service

As a response to the impact of the increasingly complex planning system on development proposals, both large and small, Rickett Architects has established a bespoke Development Planning Service – led by Charles Robinson.

Charles has been in practice for over 35 years across a wide range of disciplines including directorships in national planning consultancies to commercial client-side/developer positions.   He also remains active within the Royal Town Planning Institute and is a past Chair of the West Midlands Branch.


His particular expertise relates to development so he understands the pressures on clients in terms of the delivery of viable schemes.   It is this expertise that makes Charles’ appointment such a good fit within the architectural team at Ricketts.  

Welcoming Charles to the Practice Dan Rickett (Managing Director) noted, ‘As a dynamic team with a strong track record and ethos of delivering development Charles’ skills and contacts will be a superb fit to our other skill sets.   He is already working with our teams on a wide range of projects from bespoke cutting edge residential schemes to major commercial buildings and large urban residential extensions.’

He is also working with the architectural teams to assess the implications of the new National Space Standards to ensure that Rickett Architects’ clients will be ready for these and ahead of the curve as they are continue to be adopted across the country.
