Back to meet the team

Associate Director and Head of Planning

Tom Collins


Tom joined Mather Jamie as Senior Planning Manager in October 2020, following a 13 year career in planning consultancy. Tom has a broad range of planning experience, including leisure, commercial and retail developments, but has developed particular expertise in residential development. Acting on behalf of landowners, promoters and housebuilders, Tom has seen developments through every stage of the process, from initial appraisals of sites through to local plan promotion, outline and reserved matters applications and implementation of consents.

Having previously been involved in all aspects of planning consultancy, including acting as expert witness at public inquiries, Tom now advises clients on the strategic promotion of sites, helping to formulate and implement the planning strategy, and overseeing the consultant team at every stage of the planning process.

Outside of work, Tom enjoys all forms of cycling (both pedal- and motor-powered), as well as skiing, cooking and travelling. He already has his son hooked on two wheels, and is looking forward to getting him onto skis as well.
