UK Planning Law & Policy
The UK planning regime can be a complex environment that requires an understanding of planning law, policy, the duties of local authorities and statutory bodies, as well as the rights of individuals and applicants.
Our multi-disciplinary background allows us to bring these various elements together to provide comprehensive support to our clients in the public and private sectors to meet even the most challenging needs.
Whether you are a property developer looking to make a planning application, an investor assessing the best use for a property portfolio, or a lender conducting due diligence to minimize investment risk, we offer initial advice to maximize development potential and reduce planning risk. Our pre-application approach is critical in reducing the cost and risk of later applications, as resource and time constraints often require it.
We collaborate with agents, valuers, and architects to advise on the viability of a scheme, including density, car parking, and the planning gain package that may be required.
We have extensive experience in urban regeneration and provide advice to developers on the powers, processes, and steps involved in advancing larger schemes. We work with other professionals and local authorities to insulate the scheme against future costs and delays caused by legal challenges and third-party objections.
We also have experience negotiating planning, highways, and other relevant agreements that may be necessary to secure permission while ensuring that a viable, sustainable, and attractive development is delivered. Our background advising several local planning authorities allows us to provide detailed and clear advice on planning procedures, costs, and timescales.
We aim to facilitate a cooperative relationship between clients and the local authority to deliver sustainable and high-quality development
