Robbie is a Nuffield Farming Scholar having studied a topic entitled “addressing the perceived failings of short-term land occupation”. Having recently travelled across the globe as part of his study topic, Robbie has interacted with farmers, the industry and governments to explore the opportunities for farmers linked to their availability of land.
Robbie grew up in Lincolnshire where his family farm just over 850 hectares of combinable crops. 12 years ago, the family business undertook a major diversification project developing a plastic processing and recycling plant. The family set up Agri-cycle Ltd which now consists of a national network of franchises collecting and recycling a vast range of farm plastic waste. 6 years ago Agri-cycle received a Royal Warrant from HM The Queen.
Joining a firm of rural surveyors in early 2009, Robbie qualified as a Chartered Surveyor and received fellowship of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV). Robbie specialises in landlord and tenant matters, valuation work and advising clients on infrastructure and utility-based schemes. Driven by providing a successful outcome, Robbie enjoys helping clients solve problems and takes pride in delivering the right result. Earlier this year, Robbie set up his own rural surveying practice; Brockthorpe Consultancy Ltd with two other colleagues. He bases himself in Northumberland, but also acts for a range of clients within the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire region.
In May 2017, Robbie was elected to represent Alnwick, Northumberland as a Conservative County Councillor.
