William Trinick BSc(Hons) MRICS
William has over 27 years’ professional involvement with rural property. Having gained much experience nationally, he returned to his native Cornwall several years ago and combines local knowledge with wide and diverse experience, working collaboratively with other professionals.
He has been a qualified Chartered Surveyor (MRICS) since 1990. He is also a professional member of the CLA (Country Land and Business Association).
Before establishing his own business, he has managed large estates as a resident agent and has worked for national firms and a National Park. He has been involved with rural property at all levels from strategic to operational, with experience encompassing everything from heritage landscapes and grade 1 listed houses to quarries and development sites. He is passionate about achieving a balance of interests that allows the countryside, its businesses, communities, landscapes and wildlife to thrive.
He has also worked on the development of a number of new projects from concept to realisation, including a new school premises, a commercial vineyard and winery, a large open air event and a community conservation scheme. Whilst maintaining a wide variety of work, he also specialises increasingly in planning and development, including the conversion of farm buildings to residential use under “Class Q”.
As a trustee for 13 years of The Trussell Trust, which has over 400 foodbanks UK-wide as well as working in Bulgaria, William gained valuable experience of governance and development of one of the country’s most rapidly growing charities. He is now putting this into practice more locally as Chairman of Truro Foodbank. He is also a governor of Roselyon School.
In his spare time he loves family life, is involved with local church leadership and, when time allows, enjoys sailing, shooting and painting.
