Environment & Planning

"The set is refreshingly unstuffy, with proactive, high-quality lawyers, and they offer a competitive price advantage compared to London sets."

Guildhall Chambers is recognised as one of the leading Sets on the Western Circuit for all Environment & Planning matters.

Within our Environment & Planning team we have specialist practitioners at all levels of seniority and spanning the full spectrum of planning, environmental and other related local government and land-use matters, in particular the implementation and interpretation of European legislation on a domestic setting.

We are regularly instructed by developers, landowners, private interests, local authorities, regulators and other public bodies.

Our ability to draw from across Guildhall Chambers’ teams (in particular Property & Estates, Crime and Commercial) means we are able to meet the interdisciplinary challenges that often arise in environmental cases.

Members of Guildhall Chambers appear regularly in the criminal courts on behalf of the regulated and regulators, and in other important forums such as civil courts, planning inquiries and the Administrative Court.
