Kamran was also the key legal adviser on planning and highway matters in relation to the delivery (nationwide) of the Government’s school building programme. His advice spanned projects for redevelopment, new build and refurbishment and extended to advice on government policy guidance and design standards

Kamran is regularly called on by professional bodies such as the RTPI and RICS to present seminars on planning law.
