Position

Ed is an experienced barrister specialising in planning law, noted for his skill and expertise as an inquiry advocate. He is regularly instructed by both developers and local authorities to act in relation to substantial residential and mixed-use development including significant town centre regeneration schemes.

Some examples of recent cases are: a regeneration town centre scheme in Ashford to include nearly 300 residential units plus commercial and other uses and a new town square, a town centre regeneration scheme in Homsey including eighty residential units, the Chiswick Curve mixed-use scheme which if consented would be the tallest building in West London, and the Syon Park scheme which seeks consent for a housing estate in order to enable long-term repairs to one of the most important Grade I buildings in London.

Although the principal focus of his practice is large mixed-use and housing schemes, he is noted for his expertise in planning enforcement matters and is a popular choice for local authorities and resident groups in resisting proposed gypsy and traveller development in countryside and Green Belt sites.

Ed is co-author of the book Planning Enforcement, Wildy Simmonds & Hill, 2015.
