Bruton Knowles has strengthened its Gloucester-based rural team in response to a steep increase in rural professional work across the region.
Anne Dyer BSc (Hons) MRICS FAAV, who joins the rural team as a Surveyor, previously advised on estate management of well-known West Country attractions Longleat and Cheddar Caves.
Anne joins Bruton Knowles at a critical time for rural businesses and landowners.
Head of the Rural Ben Compton said: “Landowners and farmers across the South West are facing up to the challenges of diversification and potential future loss of subsidies and this has resulted in an increase in professional work for us with clients looking for advice on a wide variety of areas including but not limited to estate management, succession planning, grants and subsidies, landlord and tenant negotiations, land sales and acquisitions, compensation matters as well as all types of valuation work.
“Anne joins us from one of the most well-known businesses in the South West, where she advised on estate management, Landlord and Tenant issues, heritage and conservation and digital mapping.
“As one of the longest established rural teams in the region, we have enjoyed a very busy productive year. We are now well placed to deliver the high quality advice our landowner, farming and rural estate clients have come to expect and value.”
Anne Dyer said: “I am very excited to be joining the rural team in time to work on a range of business projects across the Three Counties Region.
“The estate management role at Longleat and Cheddar covered a diverse portfolio of around 200 residential properties, 10 equipped holdings, bare land, grazing licenses and commercial property.
“I was involved in all aspects of Estate Management including supporting and advising the leisure businesses, access, landlord and tenant matters as well as heritage and conservation. I am looking forward to applying my skills and experience in the Gloucester office.”
