Martin also has a particular interest in planning and licensing law, and has appeared in a number of applications relating to planning permission and conservation area issues. His extensive experience of deploying concise advocacy for lay audiences in the context of jury trials has proved extremely effective before local authority committees.

Most recently, acting on behalf of an objecting party, he achieved the unanimous refusal, on both planning and conservation grounds, of an application to redevelop a large existing site into a significantly more extensive residential development in a historic and high-value area of London.

In another matter he successfully obtained an Article 4 Directive, its first by a London Council, thereby securing the future of a community Pub from the risk of residential development.
