Bob joined DPP in 1987 as a planning assistant and became a Director in 1998.
Acting for a wide variety of private sector clients on projects ranging from major retail/leisure schemes to urban mixed-use redevelopments and changes of use, he is often called upon to project manage development teams.
As well as leading DPP’s London office, Bob also has extensive expert witness experience in respect of planning appeals, examinations, CPO and High Court.
I have known Bob Robinson for many years – in fact I called him as a witness the first time he gave evidence to a planning inquiry. He identifies the key points in a case in persuasive terms and is steadfast under cross-examination. I rank Bob as one of the best planning witnesses in the country. As a planner he is that rare combination of someone with common sense, an ability to see the wood from the trees, realism and pragmatism; I wholeheartedly recommend him.
