Chartered Legal Executive

Alex McKerron

“I support my clients with all their planning needs, giving clear and practical advice. By understanding my clients and their objectives I am able to work closely with them to achieve the best possible outcome.”

Alex became a Chartered Legal Executive in 2019 and joined our Parks team in 2021 where she specialises in planning and local government work. She supports clients navigating the legal processes, from preparing planning applications and certificates of lawfulness applications to advising on planning enforcement.

She has particular specialism in assisting developers, housebuilders and registered providers with their new or prospective developments. This can include planning reviews of prospective sites and matters such as applying for diversion of a highway/footpath required in connection with the development.

Alex enjoys the fact that planning law contains such a breadth of topics that no two days are the same.

In her spare time she enjoys keeping active through activities such as paddleboarding and running; she also enjoys baking.
