David Hutchinson MSc MRTPI

I joined Aspbury Planning as a Graduate Planner in June 2013, after graduating with a Masters in Planning from Sheffield Hallam University. I am a Chartered Town Planner and gained full accreditation to the Royal Town Planning Institute in 2016. My responsibilities are wide ranging - from strategic site appraisals and pre-application negotiations to drafting planning and appeal statements. I am also the in-house housing land supply whizz-kid, and am regularly called upon to audit local authorities’ land supply in support of my clients' proposals.

A quirky fact about me: I have climbed the UK’s three highest peaks within 24 hours.
