Considered the ‘go-to’ set by many, No5 Barristers Chambers is a well-established set for planning and environmental matters, with good strength and talent in both across all levels of call. On the planning side, members of the group offer strategic advice and provide representation, with Paul Cairnes QC recently instructed Torbay & South Devon NHS Trust in a judicial review challenge funding arrangements surrounding planning permission for a strategic development of in excess of a thousand houses. In environmental practice, Satnam Choongh successfully represented the agency in Environmental Agency v Lawrence, an appeal case concerning the interpretation of the Environmental Sentencing Guidelines.
