As a senior associate in our planning practice, Hannah Quarterman has a broad range of experience on all planning related issues. She has advised on residential-led schemes, particularly in London, as well as on all matters relating to compulsory purchase orders and heritage related issues. Hannah also has experience in specialist areas, such as town and village greens and highways. 

Whilst advising a variety of leading developers Hannah has reviewed planning applications and advised on environmental impact assessments. Flexibility is a key issue when securing planning permission and, Hannah's experience includes advising on the ways of securing flexible permissions and carrying that through to Section 106 Agreements. 

Hannah's experience in advising on compulsory purchase orders includes acting for both claimants, for example in the context of HS2 and acquiring authorities. She has dealt with issues relating both to the order making procedure and the thorny area of compensation. 

Heritage issues are an increasing concern for a number of developers and Hannah has successfully grappled with these matters in a variety of contexts, including securing planning permissions at appeal where heritage impacts have been a key area of dispute. Always keen to embrace a challenge, Hannah has also explored a number of more specialist planning areas and has experience advising on town and village greens, structuring developments and planning permissions so as to minimize the community infrastructure levy payable and high court challenges.
