Planning and local authorities
The need to promote economic development, deliver housing stock, enforce against breaches of planning control and develop planning policies in an ever changing legal framework requires carefully thought-out and assured advice.
Many of the issues you face are high profile, and political sensitivities often have an impact.
With an excellent understanding of the way local authorities operate, their powers and the constraints that apply, we are adept at using effective communication to manage our way – and yours – through the political pressures and public opinion that shape service delivery.
We appreciate that planning and enforcement officers need issues addressed and practical solutions presented promptly to enable them to get the job done. Our significant experience of advising local authorities on every aspect of town and country planning and highways will ensure that you’re never kept waiting.
