Susan specialises in planning law and is involved in the Planning team’s full offering, from drafting and negotiating section 106 agreements, advising on strategy and the planning regime generally, town and village green issues and compulsory purchase matters, through to providing highway advice.


Susan has extensive experience, and a particular interest, in the manufacturing and corporate sectors. Her planning expertise, however, encompasses all property types and she now regularly works for a number of well known house-builders.

She has had a previous career as a Chartered Surveyor and is a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (FRICS).


Since joining Gateley Plc, Susan has been involved in numerous high-value, urgent instructions and has advised in relation to a range of complex section 106 agreements. These have often been drafted and/or negotiated within tight timeframes and have had a successful outcome, culminating in planning permission being granted and the client being in a position to comply with any contractual obligations that need to be met.


Susan enjoys travelling, baking, theatre, films and keeping fit.
