Landowner Development & Planning

Shaping the future

Development is one of the most complex areas you’ll face as a landowner. To succeed, getting to grips with intricate mechanisms such as the neighbourhood planning process and other regulation has never been more critical.

Exploring every avenue

Selling or developing your most important asset impacts not just you but many generations to come. Our specialist team can help you to get things right from the beginning by testing every option to maximise potential for the long-term benefit of all concerned.

We can work with you to bring both major residential (50 plus houses) and commercial developments to fruition. And we’ll help you negotiate the minefield of options, conditional contracts, joint ventures, consortium agreements, collaboration agreements and section 106 agreements you’ll find along the way.


Planning for success

The niche area of planning law is our speciality – including in-depth understanding of reforms ushered in by the Localism Act 2011.

Our development and planning lawyers draw on expertise gained in both private and public sectors. This enables us to offer tailored, end-to-end advice from the initial application process and permitted development right through to enforcement proceedings and certificates of lawfulness. We also advise on planning appeals and inquiries, as well as listed building matters.
