Planning Lawyer required to join a large local authority based in London for an initial 3 month period.

The successful Planning Lawyer must be able to handle a large caseload with minimal supervision. The work will be both transactional and advice oriented, and will include handling the following matters;

  • Drafting high profile section 106 agreements
  • Drafting section 38 and 278 highway agreements
  • Advising clients on planning and highway issues
  • Dealing with judicial review applications and attending to advise at planning committees

This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy Planning department within a sought after local authority. Due to the fast paced nature of the work, it is important to this council that the successful candidate demonstrates a positive, can-do attitude, and is able to work with dynamism and professionalism.
