Yohanna Weber, Partner, Planning & Environment

Yohanna Weber, Partner, Planning & Environment, Fieldfisher

I am a planning & environment lawyer specialising in the consenting of major development and infrastructure projects.

I like clarity. I enjoy simplifying complex issues and processes.

I help my clients by breaking down multiple, interwoven strands of legal and regulatory requirements into logical workstreams and achievable sets of goals. I formulate consenting strategies around meeting those goals on time and on budget, whilst keeping an eye on the detail.

My focus areas are energy, transport and telecommunications infrastructure, major/mixed-use development and urban regeneration. I am skilled in the promotion of development consent orders, Transport and Works Act orders, major/multi-authority planning applications and compulsory purchase orders.

I am experienced in all other contentious and non-contentious aspects of planning law, environment law and environmental impact assessment, s106 and planning agreements, highways agreements and orders, inquiries and judicial review.

I am a member of the National Infrastructure Planning Association and Compulsory Purchase Association.

I am also a Co-Chair of Planning Out, a network for LGBT professionals and their colleagues working in or with the planning sector.
