Our Planning team has a strong reputation within the real estate market both as technical experts, and for building strong and lasting relationships. Our advice and assistance to clients is at the cutting edge, and is tailored to the specific needs of each scheme.
Over the last five years, there have been dynamic changes to planning law: new legislation, policy and guidance introduced by the coalition government have been controversial and transformational. Our planning lawyers are experts in navigating clients through the changing complexities of this specialist area of law.
Our clients are diverse. A typical day might involve advising the developers of the largest planning application in London ever (a development of over 15,000 residential units); helping a home owner in Kensington and Chelsea overcome local objections; and anything in between. This variety keeps us focused on each client's individual needs and aspirations.
Our clients include:
- property developers of all sizes (both in Central London, and across England and Wales)
- institutional investors
- those affected by compulsory purchase, whether the acquiring authority or displaced occupiers
- local authorities
- leisure, retail and restaurant occupiers and developers
- private individuals.
