With lawyers specialising exclusively in these areas, we can provide expert advice in all aspects of planning and environmental law. Areas of particular strength are planning applications/appeals, enforcement notice appeals, local plan inquiries, inquiry advocacy, judicial review actions, Section 75 and other legal agreements, compulsory purchase/compensation, infrastructure projects, environmental due diligence/warranties, contaminated land, water pollution, waste management and IPC/IPPC authorisations.
The firm recognises that the complexities of planning and environmental law, particularly with the volume of new regulation emanating from Westminster, Holyrood and Brussels, are such that the needs of clients are no longer met simply by treating both areas of the law as adjuncts to our commercial property practice. Our integrated Planning & Environmental Department handles stand-alone instructions as well as providing an assist function for other departments within the firm.
Operating on a UK wide basis, our major clients include Aggregate Industries, ASDA, Barratt Developments, British Waterways, Cable & Wireless, Cala, Capital & Regional, Clydeport, Gladedale Group, Hallam Land Management, Miller Group, Muir Group, Norwich Union, Schlumberger, Stagecoach, Stewart Milne Group, Taylor Wimpey, Tiger Developments, Walker Group and Wiseman Dairies.
