A chartered surveyor has been appointed by BASC as its first Rural Land Development Manager.

Paul Williamson, who has had sixteen years experience as a rural and general practice chartered surveyor, will initially work closely with wildfowling clubs to identify opportunities for purchase and lease of land for shooting.

He will also assist clubs in maximising income from the land they own/occupy and other land management issues that arise.

Paul said: “I’ve been involved with shooting since I was 10 so I am really looking forward to working with clubs over the coming months. This new role will provide another valuable service for BASC members who need the help of a chartered surveyor.”
