Planning Law

As an experienced planning law barrister, my area of expertise is focused on regulatory breaches of Planning Law. This would include planning enforcement notices, appeals, breaches and proceedings in the criminal courts right the way up to confiscation.

Indeed, the pursuit of money said to be derived from criminal conduct arising from the breach of an enforcement notice has become more common and the sums involved can be potentially devastating to a business or individual. If you have received a planning enforcement notice, I can help you to respond appropriately, and if you wish to appeal I can provide you with expert assistance as your planning barrister throughout this process. If you are defending yourself against charges of failing to comply with an enforcement notice, I can provide you with not just advice like traditional planning solicitors, but professional representation, defending you throughout your court proceedings as your planning barrister, with a thorough and evidence-backed case.

Operating as your Planning Law Barrister

Environmental impact is also a factor considered in planning applications, which are in themselves a difficult and potentially complex area of the law. When businesses have to navigate these two issues, whether separately or together, professional legal assistance can be a huge advantage.

I can provide the same kind of expert assistance and advice with all areas of planning law like most conventional planning lawyers, however as a planning law barrister, I can also represent you in court.

As your planning barrister, I will ensure throughout the process that you are well-informed about what you are facing or the implications of the action being taken against you.

If you require advice from planning solicitors or you wish to instruct me as your planning barrister, please contact me on 07771 541449 or
