Property/Planning & Development
We have extensive experience in advising land and property owners on a wide range of planning and development matters.
We can identify development potential and advise on the best means of promoting it. We negotiate with developers on behalf of landowners terms for development options and conditional contracts and liaise thereafter with developers in ensuring that clients’ interests are safeguarded.
We negotiate the price payable with developers following the grant of planning permission. We submit planning applications on behalf of landowners and negotiate with local and unitary development authorities in relation to a wide variety of property for many alternative uses.
We advise upon and apply for Certificates of Lawfulness of Existing Use or Development. We submit appeals against the refusal of planning applications and enforcement notices and appear at public inquiries as expert witnesses and advocates.
