Roy Vandermeer OBE QC

Posted: 25 Jan 2017

The officers and committee members of PEBA are very sad to let you know that our honorary member Roy Vandermeer OBE QC has died aged 85.

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. He received the OBE for his charitable work.
