Planning specialist joins Wisbech office


A specialist planning lawyer has joined the busy residential conveyancing team at leading Fenland and West Norfolk law firm, Fraser Dawbarns LLP.

Julie Barrow, an experienced residential conveyancer, joins having spent the past three and a half years working as a planning and enforcement officer for a local authority. Julie therefore brings a unique knowledge and insight of planning law to the firm that will be of benefit to private clients and local developers, agents and architects alike.

Julie trained as a conveyancer at a well known law firm in King’s Lynn and has a detailed knowledge of Fenland and West Norfolk. Julie’s property and planning experience means she is well placed to deal with matters relating to both the sale and acquisition of property and land, and to matters relating to the obtaining of planning permission, planning obligation agreements and enforcement notices.

Julie has been on our radar for some time and we are very pleased that she is now joining us. Her experience as both a lawyer and planning officer gives her a unique insight into the planning process and I am confident that clients will be as impressed with her expertise as we are”.
