Landowners and Developers

In a development plan led system, it is critical for any landowner and developer to ensure that opportunities to influence the development plan are fully explored and seized upon for your commercial advantage.

Our Experience

We use our many years planning law experience to provide our clients with the best prospects of influencing the development plan. We would be delighted to appraise you of potential development opportunities. The work that we undertake for clients can result in very substantial improvements to their asset base.

Pressure Groups

We are experienced in acting for pressure groups. Local Plan Reviews and influencing LDFs are certainly under-exploited areas for pressure groups to consider carefully. We would be pleased to appraise the circumstances and prospects for a pressure group to influence any given case.

Commercial Property

If you’re involved in purchasing, selling or leasing commercial property or land, either as an owner, occupier, investor or developer, you must make sure you are properly advised. Poorly drafted contracts or a delay in the process can cost your business dearly. We will take the time to work to understand your objectives and provide a plan tailored to your needs.
