Environmental Law & Planning Law 

Our solicitors are members of the UK Environmental Law Association and Environmental Law Foundation and keep abreast of this rapidly evolving area of law as it expands into more areas of your life and business.

Environmental Law - the effect on your business: 

This is an area of increasing interest to businesses trying to understand and keep up with the complicated requirements of new European and domestic laws. From the need for a commercial Energy Performance Certificate, to flood risk, discharge, power consumption and sustainability targets Environmental Law will affect the running of your business on a day-to-day level.

Our experts advise on matters such as: EPC, asbestos reports, environmental searches, remediation matters, telecommunication masts, agricultural matters, river discharge licences, flood risks and more.

Planning Law - environment and your surrounds:

The High Street, your homes and the areas in which you live form your environment. To alter your environment or to object to the attempts by another to alter will bring you into contact with the planning laws of England & Wales. 

We provide advice to businesses on change of planning use, residential and commercial developments, listed buildings and conservation areas, and the planning processes including appeals. 

We have also assisted residents associations in connection with contesting and amending local authority plans and designations, including compulsory purchase orders, zoning and residential density matters.
