Within: Planning

Landmark Chambers is ‘exceptionally strong in planning law’, which is demonstrated by the number of high-profile instructions received by its members. Christopher Lockhart-Mummery QC acted for the successful developer in Hopkins Homes Ltd v Suffolk Coastal DC. The set also appeared for both sides in Dover District Council v CPRE – Neil Cameron QC and Matthew Reed QC – on the extent of a local planning authority’s duty to provide reasons for its decisions. The team has been strengthened following the arrival of Jenny Wigley from No5 Barristers Chambers, as well as Alex Goodman, who re-joined chambers in December 2017.
