Lisa acted for the Tauheedul Education Trust promoting the Olive School, Hackney’s appeal against the refusal of planning and listed building consent by Hackney Borough Council for a new Free School at the site of the former Police Station at Lower Clapton Road, Hackney on transport, design, built heritage and conservation grounds in a six day Inquiry over 11 – 19 July 2017. The proposal was highly controversial, being supported by parents of children at the school but opposed by the Acton for Clapton residents’ group. The appeal raisied issues relating to the Government’s Free Schools and education policy, as well as traditional planning and listed building matters. The Secretary of State’s decision on the appeal is awaited.

Lisa acted successfully for Farnham Town Council in a judicial review claim bought by a consortium of housing developers challenging the decision of the Borough Council approving the draft Farnham Neighbourhood Development Plan (R (Bewley Homes) v Waverley Borough Council and Farnham Town Council [2017] EWHC 1776 (Admin)). Lisa also obtained an unusual order for the Claimants to pay the costs of the Town Council, as well as those of the Borough Council.
