The planning maze can often be confusing but Shoosmiths’ planning team has a wealth of experience in supporting private and public sector clients on all aspects of planning, highways and compulsory purchase law, balancing their strategic objectives with the various demands placed upon them by the planning system.

Our specialist team has worked with commercial and residential developers, investors, retail and leisure operators, social housing bodies, major corporate occupiers, banks and other funders and a range of public sector bodies on some of the UK's most complex and challenging urban regeneration schemes, along with mixed use, residential, retail and private rented sector (PRS) developments.

Whether it is general planning advice, the drafting of infrastructure agreements or strategic planning advice to facilitate delivery of complex mixed use schemes, our team has a significant knowledge and expertise to help our clients get the deal done. Our approach is always to look forward and anticipate potential planning policy and statutory changes, and to assist in the interpretation of existing policy, such as the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
