Anjoli Foster named on Women of Influence list for 2022 on International Women’s Day

Anjoli Foster colour

Specialist planning barrister Anjoli Foster has been included in The Planner’s list of Women of Influence for 2022 published today on International Women’s Day (Tuesday 8 March). Anjoli is in stellar company as the list reflects influential women from across the world of planning including at the planning Bar. The Planner said:

‘Over the last year, Anjoli has acted in some very important cases and led large teams to successful outcomes. She successfully represented the council in the long Brighton Marina inquiry, including a very long and detailed cross-examination on design which was a main issue. She successfully defended government in the Court of Appeal in the challenge to new GPDO rights.

‘In a very different case, she has represented the appellant against the non-determination of an application for the temporary installation of a statue of a black female protestor on the plinth of the toppled Colston statue in Bristol; the decision is awaited [...] This has been a year representing clients successfully on high profile cases! My impression is that she is thorough and persuasive and leads client teams with sensitivity and clear direction. A true rising star at the Planning Bar.

She has been involved in most of the largest planning inquiries and High Court cases in 2021. There is simply no other female planning barrister who is doing the [same] quality of work as her currently.’

See the full list here. In a new development this year, The Planner will be hosting a reception and panel discussion looking at how to encouraging equality and diversity across the planning world supported by Landmark Chambers. We very much look forward to welcoming many of the women on this year’s list and other guests to the event on 9 May which is being held in London.
