The planning process throws up all forms of challenges and our lawyers can guide you through each phase of that process, whether you have issues around development or need to clarify aspects of the conditions or agreements which may be involved. We will advise on all aspects of planning law, including permitted development, changes of use, enforcement, high court challenges, legal agreements and implementation of permissions to assist with the management of property portfolios and the impact of development.
Our specialist planning lawyers provide legal advice on all aspects of practice and procedure. Acting for developers and landowners, we have expertise in planning and all related areas of law, including rights of way.
We have extensive experience of working with public authorities and a good understanding of all of the relevant legislation, including the Highways Act 1980, the Planning Act 2008 and using compulsory purchase order (CPO) powers when necessary.
Our planning service includes offering advice on applications, conditions, enforcement, legal agreements and issues such as stopping up and diversion of highways to enable developments to proceed.
We can also offer advice on planning appeals and litigation, such as judicial review, where necessary.
We also act for landowners in the modification of Definitive Maps, to include or exclude public rights of way.
