My work is focused on energy, waste, retail and residential developments. I am widely recognised as an expert in the oil and gas sector and in particular, the intersection between key issues in the renewable energy and aviation fields.
I have been involved in a significant number of projects in the Scottish market, including the representation of clients at public inquiries, the negotiation and drafting of Section 75 Agreements, liaison with the Scottish Government and the instruction of Scottish Advocates.
Other recent projects have included securing planning permission for the development of a gas field, processing plant, pipelines and associated infrastructure in North Yorkshire; advising National Air Traffic Services in relation to aviation impact issues arising from windfarm developments in England and Scotland; and advising Liverpool Airport on planning and highways issues.
I have been ranked as one of the top planning lawyers in the country in the Planning Magazine annual legal survey. I am a regular contributor to a number of professional journals including Planning Magazine, Minerals Planning and Environmental Business Magazine.
