Senior Planning Lawyer required to join a local authority based in London for an initial 3 month period.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a popular local authority who are willing to provide flexibility for the right candidate. The client is happy to consider this role on a full-time or part-time basis (comprising of 3 - 4 days), however it is essential that you are available to attend planning committees, which are usually held on a Thursday evening.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced Planning Lawyer, who has the enthusiasm and ability to undertake this fast-paced role. You will be managing a substantial caseload covering the full range of planning, highways, and public law matters, to include;
● Negotiating planning and highways agreements
● Dealing with planning enforcement matters
● Attending planning committees
● Dealing with planning inquiries and appeals
The ideal Senior Planning Lawyer will have previous experience in local government or similar in order to hit the ground running. You must be able to demonstrate your ability to provide prompt and clear legal advice on planning issues to clients and members.
Any previous managerial experience would be highly desirable, as the role involves providing supervision (alongside the other senior planning lawyer) to 1 planning lawyer in the team.
