Iain Skinner has a wealth of experience in rural planning and valuations.
He studied estate management, rural enterprise and land management and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1995. Before setting up Skinner Holden he worked for a range of organisations including Forestry England, the Ministry of Defence (Defence Estates), Surrey County Council, rural chartered surveyors and rural planning consultancies.
Iain has negotiated leases, and assisted with planning permission, on the first woodland burial site and first new Forest Holidays site on the Forest Enterprise estate. He also provided the planning and estates support to the teams creating new visitor facilities at Wendover Woods, Alice Holt Forest and Bedgebury Pinetum.
This wide experience means he is also well-versed in the delicate negotiations required for development within environmentally sensitive locations.
Skinner Holden Property Advisors is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
