Landmark has a pre-eminent presence in planning appeals in England and Wales. Barristers are actively involved in the full range of appeals (against the refusal of planning permission, enforcement appeals, lawful development certificate appeals, call-in applications and recovered appeals), whether those appeals proceed by inquiry, hearings or in writing.
Increasingly, barristers are heavily involved promoting Local Plans and guiding these through Examinations, and objecting to others. The processes lend themselves to early and collegiate involvement.
Landmark barristers regularly appear in the highest profile townscape-transforming inquiries. Recent work includes 20 Fenchurch Street (the ‘Walkie Talkie’), 1 Blackfriars, The Tulip, Anglia Square and the Commonwealth Institute, and members have also appeared in many of the most significant historic inquiries, such as the Shard and Heron Tower. Members also appear across a huge range of different development types from fracking to football stadia, nuclear power stations to new towns, and schools to strategic rail freight interchanges.
Geographically, members undertake inquiry work throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
