Landmark barristers appear at many of the biggest inquiries every year, and advise on development schemes at all stages. Expertise extends to all aspects of planning and development. Our barristers appear in planning enforcement appeals, inquiries and challenges before the courts at all levels.
Landmark barristers have regularly been and are continually instructed in major infrastructure inquiries and cases of national importance for example Crossrail, High Speed 2 and Heathrow expansion.
Our barristers are experienced in the various routes to consent, whether through development consent orders under the Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects regime under the Planning Act 2008, Transport and Works Act Orders, planning permissions or hybrid Bills.
Clients include businesses, local authorities, Secretaries of State, community and interest groups, and individuals.
In Planning Magazine’s annual survey of top planning barristers, Landmark KCs and juniors regularly do extremely well – the 2023 Survey featured 21 ranked Landmark silks, 12 ranked Landmark juniors, and eight of the top planning juniors under 35.
A team of Landmark barristers led by Christopher Lockhart-Mummery KC and David Elvin KC edits the Encyclopaedia of Planning Law and Practice.
Moreover, Landmark’s expertise in public law, property law and environmental law makes us uniquely placed to advise on the many planning cases that overlap with these areas. [Link to about us/cross-practice]
