The Team

Rob White, Lawrence Land

Rob White

Rob is a RICS qualified Planning and Development Surveyor specialising for the last 15 years in the provision of new care home and care village developments. Before establishing Lawrence Land with co-directors he worked with client organisations in the private, public and not for profit sectors with a brief to acquire and develop land for residential property and care homes. His specialist skills in securing planning consents for care facilities has ensured each project is delivered to meet the clients brief, within budget, exceeding all the standards necessary to achieve approval with the necessary registration bodies. Rob therefore has wide ranging experience in the Housing, Health and Care sectors. His knowledge has been gained in working for Housing Associations, the NHS and as Land Manager for Barchester Healthcare/Richmond Care Villages. This experience in interpreting client requirements has led to developments which not only provide an efficient, practicable layout for staff to provide services but also create an environment in which residents and families enjoy being within.

His 'people first' approach to the design and development of new care homes has proved invaluable in steering projects through the planning process to fruition.
