Development & Planning

We have experience in providing professional advice to landlords in connection with site acquisitions/sales where planning permission is sought for redevelopment and for change of use. We have advised on both freehold and long leasehold sites with potential for alternative uses including commercial and scientific properties, residential development, data centres or extensive refurbishment of existing buildings. We have a planning consultant with extensive experience in both the public and private sectors.

Recent examples include:

  • Disposal of a brownfield site after obtaining planning consent for 27 houses
  • Advice in connection with the preparation of Supplementary Planning Documents
  • Negotiating the sale of an option on land for a proposed supermarket development
  • Planning advice and negotiating an agreement for lease of land for a proposed data centre
