Concerns about productivity have put the planning system under further scrutiny whilst, at the same time, public sector cost-cutting is eating into the capacity of Local Planning Authorities to deliver; creating a climate of conflict as the Courts continue to be part of the battleground between different interests.
All of this continues to be overshadowed by European environmental law. Our long-established planning team continually monitors the changes coming through the planning system and provides up-to-date advice to help you meet your objectives.
We act for over 150 public sector clients, including government agencies, local authorities, health and education services, plus registered social landlords, private developers, luxury goods, food and drink and value retailers.
