Obtaining speedy planning decisions and staying ahead of the game are vital to landowners, developers, local authorities and residents. The area can be a wrangle of red tape and regulations and whichever side of the fence you’re on – applying for or opposing a planning application, you will benefit enormously from our long-established planning experience and robust advice.

Town and Country Planning is a highly technical and often controversial area.  Whether you are a landowner or a developer wanting to obtain planning permission or an individual or local residents group concerned about proposals which might affect your amenity, we can help and represent you.  We also act for Councils/local planning authorities.
