Kingsley Smith Planning Law Specialists

Your Planning Project

Kingsley Smith Solicitors will help you to realise your planning project dream. Our team is friendly and supportive, no matter what we've got your back.

If you are looking to obtain planning permission, our solicitors will apply innovative and proactive thinking to your application to ensure it has every chance of success.

If you have already been refused planning permission, do not be discouraged. We won't encourage you to pursue your planning appeal if we think it is unlikely to succeed, but if we believe we can reformulate your case to have a reasonable chance of success we will move mountains to give your case the best chance possible.

No problem is too complicated or tricky for Kingsley Smith Solicitors.

You can count on us for guidance and advice through your whole planning project, from boundary disputes, permitted development and public access to listed buildings and conservation areas. We will not let planning regulations stand in the way of your project.
