Anna is an experienced planning law specialist who advises on a broad range of planning matters. Her sector focus includes residential development, strategic land, build to rent, energy and infrastructure. She regularly negotiates complex planning and infrastructure agreements and has a wealth of experience in planning inquiries and judicial review proceedings.

An area of real enthusiasm for Anna is energy and infrastructure (including nationally significant infrastructure projects). Anna has led many clients through the consenting process for such projects and has acted for both acquiring authorities and landowners in relation to compulsory purchase, with extensive experience of dealing with cases being heard at the Upper Tribunal (Land Chamber).

Anna is also heavily involved in sustainability, advising on matters relating to planning reform and the journey to net zero and how this impacts upon all stakeholders in the development process. She also helps clients engage with new regulatory frameworks and deal with the legal implications of changes in corporate strategies and business models.

  • "Excellent on compulsory purchase matters” and the negotiation and completion of planning obligations and infrastructure agreements
  • Anna Fouracre was absolutely excellent and delivered a great result.
  • I have worked with Anna on several projects and have found her to be extremely diligent with sound legal and commercial advice and always responding in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
