1Kings ChambersPlanning2023 | Band 1 | 3 Years RankedKings Chambers remains the pre-eminent set for planning expertise in the North of England and attracts a wealth of praise from instructing solicitors. Barristers at the set handle complex planning appeals and inquiries, and are adept at acting for both appellants and local planning authorities. Members of Kings Chambers handle everything from objections to residential developments, to compulsory purchase matters and listed buildings issues. A source describes Kings Chambers as "the stand-out planning set in the North." Notable recent instructions include acting for Shropshire Council at the Court of Appeal, in respect of a judgment on how local planning authorities may dispose of open space, as well as successfully resisting a claim for judicial review against West Lancashire District Council over its decision to grant planning permission for a new supermarket within the Green Belt.
