Our highly experienced team has a great understanding around planning needs

Our planning team represents homeowners, landowners, developers and local authorities on planning law, policy and procedures. We have advised on many major commercial, residential and infrastructure projects.

We deal with planning applications, planning obligations and infrastructure agreements with a practical, commercial and cost-effective approach. We deliver solutions but also advise on appeals, examinations into local plans and litigation.

We guide our clients through the complexities of both small works and major development projects, across all markets, and help them to achieve their desired outcomes.

We advise on issues, which sit alongside the planning process, integral to development proposals such as infrastructure agreements, highways and compulsory purchase. Our advocates collaborate closely with our conveyancing team on housing projects and property development.
