SIX PUMP COURT (Chambers of Stephen Hockman QC)

Position

Anne specialises in planning and environment work. She advises developers on pre-application discussions, the content of planning applications and prospects of success on appeal. She is particularly experienced in planning inquiries and hearings and has a wide client base, ranging from individuals, local authorities, national and international companies. She is noted for her ability to work as part of a team and present a client’s case clearly and pragmatically. Anne successfully acted for the local planning authority at the DP World Thames Gateway container port inquiry in Essex (described as a ‘once in a lifetime’ case). This scheme which includes a container port, new rail line and 10m sq ft of commercial development is now being constructed. She has recently been advising on proposals for a major strategic mixed use in West Ham. She also has wide experience of conducting cases relating to conservation, retail and residential proposals and also proposals to list Assets of Community Value and register Village Greens. She advises both developers and local planning authorities. Anne has also sat as an inspector on a number of occasions which gives her an added perspective which others do not have. She has written widely on her subject and regularly speaks at National conferences. Most recently, she was appointed to the editorial board of Garner’s Environmental Law.
Anne Williams is a Visiting Professor at the Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning, UCL
