About Reeve Brown

Who we are

The Reeve Brown team is committed to minimising risks and maximising rewards for every one of our clients and their land.

Our team contains professionals with a uniquely diverse range of skill sets that provides us with the ability to tackle all aspects of the planning and promotion process with unparalleled insight and efficiency.

The team includes in house Chartered Town Planners, regulated by the RTPI and offering the security of professional indemnified advice from the outset of our discussions with landowners. We work closely with our architectural design partners to ensure our schemes are design led from the earliest stage.

The Reeve Brown team includes current and former lawyers, NHBC registered builders and a large but closely knit team of specialist sub-consultants to manage report preparation for areas such as ecology and trees.

The planning and development team is led by Jonathan Brown, a former solicitor who is passionate about the countryside and rural living. He believes sensitive, well-designed, well-planned development enhances rural communities and that promoting sustainable and deliverable sites are an important contribution towards solving the UK housing shortage and a welcome boost to rural settlements.
