Real Estate Visions
Our respected planning team helps both public and private clients on the full range of contentious and transactional planning requirements. We deliver market leading advice that secures permission for clients to pursue their commercial endeavours. Our planning group has an impressive track record ranging from complex and controversial strategic developments, to heritage property and high value homeowner projects.
We work extensively with local planning authorities, project stakeholders and developers, often in tandem with our real estate, construction and finance specialists, to offer dedicated and bespoke client teams. These teams are further complimented by our strong offering in the infrastructure, aviation and hospitality sectors.
We provide a balanced service across transactional and contentious planning matters. At the front end, we support clients in meeting tight deadlines, undertaking planning applications, feasibility reviews, and pursuing compulsory purchase orders. For contentious matters, we can help devise solutions, resist challenges, suppress grants and undertake planning appeals.
