We are deeply saddened to learn that, Roy Vandermeer OBE QC, died aged 85 on 13 January 2017.

20 January 2017

Former member of FTB, their website reads: 'Roy was, on any view, one of the most distinguished and distinctive practitioners at the Planning Bar. He was a brilliant advocate, notable not least for his skill in cross-examination which he exercised to devastating effect. His public service in the planning field included sitting as the Inspector on the Heathrow Terminal 5 Inquiry and as a deputy High Court judge. Roy was also a man of great personal kindness, not least to the many in Chambers who were fortunate to act as his juniors. He received the OBE for his charitable work.'' You can read his obituary in the Times using the link below.
