A Planning Lawyer is required to join a local authority organisation in London for an initial 3 month period, with a view to extend thereafter.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Planning Lawyer to join a supportive team who offer excellent administrative support within a busy local authority. Applications are welcome from candidates who have previous local authority or private practice experience, although it is essential to be able to manage a complex caseload of planning matters.

The successful candidate will undertake a varied caseload of work, which may include;

  • Dealing with high value planning obligations and highway agreements
  • Drafting s106 agreements
  • Acquiring empty properties
  • Advising clients on planning issues
  • Dealing with judicial review applications
  • Planning enforcement, including drafting enforcement/breach of condition notices
  • Advising at planning committees
  • Instructing and liaising with Counsel and attending judicial review
  • Planning policy and guidance

The local authority are happy to accommodate the successful candidate with a level of flexibility around working hours if required, with the opportunity to work a day from home every week. The office is easy to reach and is situated within walking distance from most transport links.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Kemi Awodiji in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
