The success of all development projects is dependent on planning. 

What do we do?

We provide extensive experience and proactive advice in planning development projects, highways and compulsory purchase and compensation. 

We also advise on local government law, practice and procedures, and on environmental and climate change issues, not to mention all planning development projects of town and village greens and Assets of Community Value applications. Our proactive practical approach enables us to identify and resolve issues for our clients before they can turn into problems.

Through the lifespan of any scheme, our team are on-hand to advise on everything from the inception of a project, the strategy for moving that project forward through the planning development projects stage and any subsequent appeal, to court challenges if necessary.

Planning development projects is becoming an increasingly sophisticated task and clients need planning lawyers who are experienced in their particular sector. With expertise spanning greenfield, urban and town centre regeneration and mixed-use schemes, we’ve advised on projects across the following:

  • leisure and retail
  • residential
  • employment
  • infrastructure
  • minerals
  • town centres
  • highways and transport
  • stadia
  • tall buildings
  • energy and waste
  • logistics and distribution. 
Notable practice advising on the full gamut of planning matters ... Clients say: ‘The quality of their work is excellent; they’re very approachable and responsive with clear and well thought out advice’

Who do we help?

Much of our planning development projects work and advice is in the private sector, focusing on developers, landowners, housebuilders, retailers and elite sports clubs but we also work for or alongside local authorities on planning matters as well as delivering regeneration projects using compulsory purchase powers.
