Jenny Wigley KC
Jenny’s practice is focused on planning and environmental law and non-domestic rating (local government tax). She appears regularly in planning inquiries and in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court in judicial review and statutory review claims including those related to adequate consultation, legitimate expectation, heritage, Habitats Regulations, EIA, SEA, air quality, s.106 obligations and conditions, the GPDO, enforcement, interpretation of policy and adequacy of reasons. Of notable recent interest, she represented the successful claimant in the statutory review challenge to all the Green Belt allocations in the Leeds Site Allocations Plan.
On the non-domestic rating side, her practice includes cases in the Valuation Tribunal, Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) and the Higher Courts, including in the landmark Divisional Court cases concerning empty rates relief (Makro, Kenya Aid, Digital Pipeline and Pall Mall).
Jenny was formerly a solicitor at Stephenson Harwood and was called to the Bar in 2000. She was selected by a panel of judges as one of The Planner’s Women of Influence for 2021.
