I am a specialist in the practice of planning law and its closely associated cousin, compulsory purchase law. I joined the Michelmores’ planning team in April 2024, working from the Firm’s Bristol office.

I am very experienced in all things planning including strategic planning advice; land promotion; drafting and amending planning obligations; interpretation of planning permissions and amending planning conditions; and advising on permitted development rights. I also have expertise on the infrastructure agreements required to complete the developments, and on managing the appropriate response to planning enforcement. I have wide experience of both sides of compulsory purchase orders having acted for acquiring authorities and for those affected by compulsory purchase schemes.

My clients are wide-ranging, including energy sector clients, local and national governments, and private house builders and social housing providers.

When not travelling around the country in their camper van, me and my family live in North Somerset.
