Stephen Morgan

Biography

Stephen has always specialised in planning and related fields of law, having graduated in both law and planning. One of his main areas of practice is village greens and commons and he regularly sits as a village green Inspector as well as advising on these matters. His experience, both as adviser and advocate, also covers the range of planning and related topics, including major infrastructure projects and in particular waste and energy facilities; his work covers the regulatory aspects (under the various regimes and Directives) as well as the planning issues.

Stephen regularly gives presentations as part of the Landmark Chambers seminar series but also at other major events. These have covered village greens and commons and localism and neighbourhood planning â?? Stephen has a particular interest on how those new powers can be used and the opportunities and implications they bring.

Stephen is recommended by Chambers & Partners 2014 as a leading planning law junior, which states that, "He is exactly the sort of pragmatic and approachable counsel that clients love." The Legal 500 2013 also ranks Stephen as a leading junior in planning law. He is a member of PEBA.
