  • Compulsory Purchase Orders
  • Listed buildings
  • Breaches of planning control and planning enforcement
  • Challenging the grant of planning permissions via judicial review

We also work closely with town and country planners who specialise in preparing planning applications and appeals.

“Natalie has been a pleasure to work with, she was efficient and effective in negotiating and advising us upon the planning agreements required for our proposed developments, which was essential since we couldn’t start work on site until these were signed off. Completely dedicated to her job and clients, I was immensely happy with the work she carried out for us and I very much look forward to working with her again in the future on our next development”.
