Planning and environmental

Our team understands the hurdles you could face when planning a major project.

With our clear and commercially sound advice, we'll guide you through the planning process. Our support begins even before the pre-planning stage and continues through planning applications and the development itself.

And if you have to contend with public inquiries, judicial reviews and appeals, we'll get you through these, too.

We work with developers, landowners, house-builders, corporate-occupiers and the public sector. Lawyers in our specialist team advise on compulsory purchase, highways and public law. They'll also help you conduct environmental impact assessments and understand environmental law.

If you need to negotiate planning, s106 or infrastructure, we're in your corner. We have a strong history of challenging enforcement and breach of condition notices.
