Our planning and environmental team provide wide-ranging expertise and strategic advice on various matters.
Our planning experience includes:
- Complex planning applications
- Drafting, negotiating and settling planning, highways and environmental infrastructure agreements
- Appeals and high court challenges in respect of planning decisions
- Enforcement actions
- Developments affecting listed buildings
We also routinely advise on sundry development-related issues, including rights of light and highways law.
Our environmental experience includes permitting matters, public nuisance and water pollution, either as a stand-alone engagement or as part of a corporate or real estate transaction.
We regularly advise landowners on resistance to compulsory purchase orders and on compensation claims resulting from compulsory purchases, including applications for Certificates of Appropriate Alternative Development and references to the Upper Tribunal (Lands).
