Thrings - Bristol
An opportunity has arisen within Thrings Planning and Environmental Sub Team for an ambitious Solicitor 1+ PQE.
This is a great opportunity to join a growing, busy and vibrant team in a company that encourages and promotes career development and progression. The Team’s planning work includes non-contentious elements such as negotiating and drafting both planning and infrastructure agreements as well as preparing and submitting applications.
The contentious planning work covers advising on statutory appeals and representation at hearings and Public Inquiries. It also covers advising clients in relation to statutory challenges in the High Court and judicial review.
The team also undertakes work in the Magistrates’ Court when defending/mitigating in relation to criminal offences for non-compliance with Enforcement Notices, Planning Contravention Notices, Breach of Condition Notices, breaches under the Listed Building Act and TPO/Conservation Area offences.
The team also advises in related areas of law, including the compulsory purchase regime, town and village greens, highways and rights of way. The successful candidate will work closely with Alex Madden, Partner and Head of the Planning and Environmental Team.
The role is Bristol based, but the successful applicant should be willing to travel between all of the firm’s offices, to clients’ premises and to those of other parties when required.
