Overview

Harriet is a barrister with over twenty years' experience. She is quick and flexible to respond to instructions, she is informal with her clients, and she has the necessary steel for big cases and powerful opponents.

A recent client described Harriet's closing speech as "one of the most clinical eviscerations I have ever heard." Of course, not every case requires such an approach.

She has specific experience of most of the technically complex issues in planning including
• Housing land supply;
• Strategic Environmental Assessment and Environmental Impact Assessment;
• Compulsory purchase and compensation;
• The Community Infrastructure Levy;
• Contempt of court – and planning injunctions;
• Green belt policy;
• Viability assessments;
• Human rights;
• Waste management and disposal;
• Drainage and flood risk;
• ROMP applications;
• Gypsy and traveller site provision – as promoter, objector, and local authority.

Environmental work outside the planning field includes
• The Aarhus Convention and environmental information;
• Local authority duties re contaminated land;
• actions for nuisance (including mediation);
• noise abatement notice appeals;
• Regulatory crime.

Most of Harriet's recent inquiry work has concerned highly contentious major residential development proposals.It also includes contentious heritage development proposals, including the Urgent Works Notices and CPO of the Grade II* former North Wales Hospital, Denbigh; and she works on small scale proposals in sensitive locations which raise challenging legal and planning issues, for example basement development in central London, river-edge development adjoining the Thames, and assets of community value.

    Overview

    Harriet has worked with local authorities and others on the promotion and assessment of energy development. Her energy sector experience includes:

    • A planning appeal for a 25-30MW solar farm on 50 hectares of agricultural land in Suffolk. Harriet acted for the planning authority against the appeal by Hive Energy, raising issues of landscape and heritage impact. The appeal was dismissed in 2013.
    • Promoting a CPO of industrial land in Great Yarmouth in order to assemble suitable sites for the offshore wind industry's supply chain. CPO was made in 2015. The 2016 inquiry was avoided through negotiation.
    • Objection to a CPO of the land needed to lay a gas pipeline which ran through a national park in Wales (2007).
    • Several judicial review applications concerning onshore wind proposals where the Environmental Impact Assessment Process has been in issue, for example Hubert v Carmarthenshire Council (2015).

    Cornerstone on the Planning Court

    1st September 2015

    Cornerstone on the Planning Court, the definitive guide to the new Planning Court produced by Cornerstone Barristers, is now available to buy online and in book shops.

    Edited by Tom Cosgrove and written by members of the Cornerstone Planning Team, the guide is the first of its kind to analyse the procedures and work of the Planning Court which was introduced in April 2014.

    Designed to be practical and accessible, it is the essential reference for all those who are involved in bringing or defending claims in the Court, and those who have an interest in the broad range of claims that now fall within the Court's remit. The guide will be of particular use to those instructing solicitors and barristers in planning related matters such as planning consultancies, development companies, pressure groups and individuals, as well as solicitors, professional planning bodies and local authorities.

    Contributors to Cornerstone on the Planning Court include Michael Bedford QC, Josef Cannon, Estelle Dehon, Emma Dring, James Findlay QC, Robin Green, Mark Lowe QC, Jack Parker, Clare Parry, Asitha Ranatunga and Robert Williams.

    Cornerstone on Councillors' Conduct

    1st September 2015

    Edited by Philip Kolvin QC, Head of Cornerstone Barristers, and written by members of Chambers, Cornerstone on Councillors' Conduct identifies and explains the standards that govern the conduct of those elected to Local Government in England and Wales.

    Contributors to Cornerstone on Councillors' Conduct include: James Findlay QC, Philip Coppel QC, Robin Green, Harriet Townsend, Wayne Beglan, Damien Welfare, Estelle Dehon, Ryan Kohli, Robert Williams, Emma Dring, Zoe Whittington, Jack Parker and Matt Lewin.

    The book has been designed as a readable, practical guide for all those involved in local government, including officers, councillors, monitoring officers and lawyers.

    With the foreword kindly contributed by Cllr David Sparks, the Chairman of the Local Government Association, topics considered within the guide include:

    • The standards regime
    • Councillors' conduct and decision-making
    • Complaints procedure
    • Challenging council decisions
    • Offences

    Reviews include:

    Cornerstone Barristers has produced a "book which is not only extremely useful from a professional standpoint, but it is also eminently readable." It "is not just a handy reference book to Councillors' conduct: it is an indispensable guide and should be the first port of call when questions arise." James Button and Co-Bulletin

    The publication"skilfully navigates its way through the dense and dangerous jungle of intervening statutory, guidance, caselaw and other foliage from the former Standards Board regime (following the Donnygate scandal) to the present slimmed-down but imperfect present." Nicholas Dobson, a Consultant with Freeths LLP writing for Local Government Lawyer

    Philip Kolvin QC discusses the issues confronting local councillors and the need for a consistent approach to standards of conduct in an interview with Bloomsbury Professional.
