Maggie Baddeley

Maggie is a freelance planning consultant and chartered surveyor.

She has extensive experience of working on a variety of scales and types of development projects, with proposals throughout the UK being taken through all steps in the development management process, including pre-application and appeal, and post-approval and implementation stages. Her particular skill is in assisting with complex law and policy-related issues and devising strategies for resolving them.
Maggie has considerable expertise in the development planning process, at all stages including neighbourhood level, in the drafting of policies and guidance, and the preparation of representations on emerging plans and other documents on behalf of a range of clients with diverse development interests.
Previously a planning director at Lichfields, she ran the company’s planning policy and law service. For a number of years, Maggie was vice-chair of the Planning Committee of the British Property Federation (BPF) and often took part in discussions regarding emerging law and policy particularly with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and No. 10, on the BPF’s behalf and for Lichfields. Most recently, she advised on the Housing and Planning Act’s brownfield registers and permission in principle.
Maggie specialises in monitoring, reporting and commenting on the implications of emerging Government policy and planning legislation, guidance and advice for clients and co-consultants.

In her spare time, Maggie is an architectural and town planning tour guide in London – for Open-City, for a German architectural practice based in Hamburg and for another in Copenhagen.
