Planning Solicitor

Local Authority

South East


£45k - £57k

An outstanding opportunity has arisen for a Planning Solicitor to a quasi-organisation on a permanent basis.

As a Planning Solicitor you will be exposed to intricate and routine Planning matters, this will range from large scale Section 106's, such as 900 new houses and Development Consent Orders.

As a Planning Solicitor you will also undertake the following duties:

  • Provide Planning advice
  • Judicial Reviews
  • Planning Litigation
  • Compulsory Purchase Orders

The Council don't tend to advise on committees, therefore there will be no expectation for you to attend evening committees. On the occasion they do, this is once per month and will be in day time hours.

The role will predominately be remote going forwards (all remote at present), as long as you service the needs of clients, once or twice per month to attend the office will be suffice.

This is a fantastic opportunity due to the role being largely remote, there not being an expectation to attend evening committees, along with no management being involved and exposure to interesting projects.

As a Planning Solicitor you will need the following experience:

  • 4 - 5+ years PQE working as Planning Solicitor
  • Private Practice candidates will be considered, but you must have an understanding of how Local Authority Planning processes work


  • Flexible hours
  • Permanent predominately remote role
  • No evening committees
  • Exposure to complex matters
  • A competitive salary

Please send your CV ASAP to or call 0161 513 0886 at Sellick Partnership if you believe you have the relevant experience.
