Moore Barlow has announced the appointment of Victoria Charlesson as a Senior Associate within the Real Estate team to provide planning related support.

Victoria will be based in Southampton but support colleagues across all offices. She specialises in various aspects of Town and Country Planning Law, demonstrating particular expertise in planning appeals, public inquiries, and Section 106 agreements.

With over 10 years of experience as a planning and environmental law solicitor, Victoria has a wealth of knowledge in highway law and environmental law, acting for a wide range of clients, including house builders, developers, landowners and public bodies. Her expertise includes advising on contentious and non-contentious planning and environmental matters, such as complex Section 278/38 Agreements, Compulsory Purchase Orders, and Environment Agency prosecutions, including waste prosecutions.
