Planning and Compulsory Purchase

Our specialist Planning and Compulsory Purchase lawyers have a considerable range of planning, listed building and compulsory purchase experience, including planning appeals, infrastructure agreements, statutory powers and compulsory purchase. Our lawyers have acted for landowners, promoters and acquiring authorities.

We have significant experience in running large commercial projects, involving planning, property and non-property issues. This enables us to take commercial overviews and to provide high-level strategic and tactical advice.

We are also uniquely placed to provide integrated advice combining our compulsory purchase, planning, property and transport expertise, which is especially useful for landowners affected by rail schemes.
