Career

Martin has over twenty years’ experience of major projects requiring formal Environmental Impact Assessment as part of a planning application, many in the energy, minerals and waste sectors.

He is widely recognised by clients, peers and by the Law Society as a leading practitioner in many areas of planning. He has established an enviable reputation, particularly in energy, minerals, waste, and the built heritage.

Together with his experience of key environmental law issues, this enables him to provide specialist advice and advocacy on a range of planning and regulatory matters, including complex applications for or inquiries into major developments in rural, urban and environmentally sensitive areas. His experience of planning and related inquiries is second-to-none, having represented developers and planning authorities in more than 60 inquiries over some 20 years, including some of Scotland’s longest and most contentious public local inquiries. He appears with and against Senior Counsel.
